Summer Carillon Concert Series returns to Valley Forge

VALLEY FORGE — Washington Memorial National Carillon at Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge will present the 2024 Frank P. Law Summer Carillon Concert Series every Wednesday in July and August.

The series starts on Wednesday, July 3, and features performers from America, Canada and The Netherlands. This year, organizers welcome two carillonneurs new to Valley Forge, as well as welcoming back returning favorites. And the ever-popular Irish Thunder Pipes & Drums is scheduled to perform again on Aug. 14. The series concludes on Aug. 28.

As always, the concerts start at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public. These are hour-long outdoor concerts, so bring a blanket, lawn chair, snacks or dinner. The Chapel Cabin Shop will be open before the concerts for refreshments and souvenirs. All concerts are Played rain or shine.
