Special Events

The Fort Ritchie Community Center features a calendar full of great special events. Craft shows, fishing tournaments, sports challenges, and community celebrations are a small example of the many wonderful programs and events we host. In 2014, we created a Speaker’s Series that featured historians sharing stories about Fort Ritchie, Pen Mar Park, and other local treasures. Stay up to date on upcoming events by checking the website regularly and signing up to receive email alerts from the Community Center.
