LV Passport to History Month 2022

July 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

FREE

Lehigh Valley Passport to History’s flagship event Passport to History Month will return this July, featuring five weekends of fun. To date, thirty-six historic sites have signed on to open their doors for free tours, activities and programs for visitors of all ages.

The event, which originally began as a one-day event in 2019, has quickly grown in popularity. By the second year, it turned into a weekend event and now it’s a month-long event.

Passport to History Month is a celebration of local history, stories, and the community that brings Lehigh Valley history to life.
