Moraine State Park’s 50th Anniversary celebration is set for 2020 and will bring a variety of events to park patrons throughout next year. Moraine Preservation Fund, the Moraine State Park Anniversary Committee, and Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau are collaborating to offer fun activities on land and water.

“Hike Moraine” will kick off the celebration on New Year’s Day, and a Winterfest celebration will take place in February. The new double-deck “Nautical Nature” tour boat will launch on Lake Arthur in March, and as the weather breaks park patrons can enjoy Spring Wildflower Walks, Full Moon Paddles, and a unique Flag Day tribute. 

Guests also can experience everything the Park usually has to offer—just to name a few there’s boating, sailing, kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding, windsurfing, fishing, biking, horseback riding, and geocaching. Educational programs are always available at the park’s indoor facilities.

Moraine State Park opened May 23, 1970 and sits across Brady, Clay, Franklin, Muddy Creek, and Worth townships in Butler County. More than 2 million people visit each year, and the Park was selected as one of “25 Must-See Pennsylvania State Parks.”


Upcoming Events

As of the present, events until the end of August will be postponed and eventually reevaluated until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic with the intrest in keeping park guests, staff, and volunteers safe. We apologize for the inconvience.
