CANCELLED: Music in the Meadow

A Music Fest in Chadds Ford, PA


The Music in the Meadow festival, scheduled for this Saturday, May 19, at the Chadds Ford Historical Society has been cancelled due to severe weather through the weekend. With heavy rain expected during the days leading up to the event, and rain and possible thunderstorms on the day of the event, the Society’s Board of Directors decided that the best decision to insure the safety of our visitors, performers, volunteers and employees was to cancel the event. At this time there are no plans to reschedule the event in 2018.

The Society apologizes for any inconvenience that this may cause.


Even with advance cancellation of this event, the Historical Society incurred substantial costs. You can help the Society weather the storm by making a donation to offset some of the costs already incurred for this event. To support the Chadds Ford Historical Society, and our mission of historic preservation, please use the “Donate” button on the welcome page.  Thank you for your support.
