Magical History Tour – Part 4: The Rock and Roll Circus Continues, Greatest Show on Earth!

August 20, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 11:00 pm


cropped MHT exhibitPHMCStep right up! Join us for a rockin’ good time at the Magical History Tour: A Musical and Cultural Happening.  This is THE event of the season! Berks History Center presents CHAPTER FOUR of our local Berks County ‘Woodstock-like’ music festival.

Reading and Berks are known for their great musicians and the venues where they played back in the day, such as the Hamburg Field House, St. Lawrence Stadium, the Bandshell, and even Boscov’s East’s parking lot! Reunions of local bands will include Hot Ice, Clench, and Number Nine. 

We strive to bring a day of music and atmosphere that reflects the 1960s and early 1970s. Dust off your bellbottoms and tie-dyed shirts for the occasion.

Be There or Be Square!
