Bicentennial Celebration





East Goshen Township and West Goshen Township are happy to jointly celebrate two hundred years of rich history with their Bicentennial Celebration, June 3rd.

This year marks the two-hundred year anniversary of the founding of East Goshen Township and West Goshen Township. To celebrate the occasion, Township officials are teaming up to host a spectacular Bicentennial Celebration in East Goshen Township Park, on Saturday, June 3rd. Some event highlights include a Battle of the Clouds presentation held at the Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry Building, a short parade led by the East High School Band, a dramatic reenactment of the signing of the dissolution papers and an East Goshen-West Goshen pistol duel. To accompany these wonderful, historically-focused activities, the event will also offer moon bounces, twelve food trucks, a JeffSTAT helicopter landing and more! Two music stages will offer live performances by Chester County’s Amerikids, local favorites Not Quitting Our Day Job, with headliners The Blues Brotherhood, who perform up and down the eastern seaboard, most recently opening for blues legend Buddy Guy. The event reaches a crescendo with Kevin Pierce performing a trio of patriotic songs followed by a fireworks display two hundred years in the making!

The Bicentennial Celebration is open to the general public and East Goshen Township and West Goshen Township welcome everyone to come enjoy the event.
