Shade-Central City Heritage Days Festival Canceled for 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty regarding public gatherings have caused us to cancel the 2021 Heritage Days Festival. Planning is required almost a year in advance for items such as scheduling bands, food vendors, crafters, securing basket donations, items for car show, basketball and volleyball tourneys, 2K race, insurance policies, tents, restrooms, parade, set up and clean up volunteer crews and much more.

However, we are making plans for 2022 Heritage Days Festival planned for August 13 and 14, 2022.

We hope that you will stay safe and healthy and participate in all the activities offered by our local non-profits. “Christmas in the Park” will be having a Family Fun Day July 31 from 12 to 6pm.

See you in 2022

  • Heritage Days began in 1994 with the local Historical Society planning a festival to celebrate Shade Township and Central City Borough's Heritage. The festival is currently sponsored by the Shade-Central City Heritage Days Organization. The organization is comprised of several community volunteers and supported by donations from local business and organizations. The festival's goal is to be a community picnic for all ages to celebrate and enjoy good food, games, music, and other entertainment.
