CANCELLATION: 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 visit and use the “Donate” button on the welcome page.

Thank you for your support.  

The Chadds Ford Historical Society (CFHS) introduces a brand-new music festival this year – Music in the Meadow!  Don't miss out on joining us for this relaxed, community music fest right in the heart of Chadds Ford and the Brandywine Valley on Saturday, May 19, from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.

We have a fantastic line-up featuring four great local bands that will keep you rocking all day long! Music in the Meadow kicks off with West Chester’s indie rock trio, WaveRadio, at 12:30 p.m. Kennett Square’s own Rolling Thunder Blues Review brings their high-energy hard rocking blues to the meadow starting at 2:00 p.m. Classic rockers the Sin Brothers Band take the stage at 3:45 p.m. Finally, the Special Delivery Band closes out the festival with their mix of soul, funk and rock starting at 5:30 p.m. The entertainment is sponsored in part by Taylor’s Music & TribeSound Studio of West Chester, PA.


While you’re enjoying the music, you can grab a delicious bite to eat provided by one of our local restaurants, and cool down with a local wine or craft beer. Music in the Meadow also features a variety of fun and games for kids and adults alike. Hang out with friends and family and play lawn games like cornhole, giant JengaTM, Kan JamTM, horseshoes, and more. Bring a blanket and camp chairs and plan to spend the day here! Well-behaved dogs are welcome to attend too, but please keep them on a leash at all times.

Music in the Meadow is held on the grounds of Chadds Ford Historical Society, 1736 N. Creek Road, Chadds Ford, PA. Free parking is available adjacent to the festival grounds. Advance tickets are available for $15 for adults 18 and older and free for children 17 and under. CFHS members are free with membership card.
