The Oyster Picnic – The Old Goshenhoppen Oyster Picnic started in 1877 as a fund raiser for the Sunday School. People came from surrounding communities in Montgomery and Bucks counties, and special excursion trains brought people from Philadelphia along the now abandoned Allentown line of the Reading Railroad. Farmers would be waiting with their wagons at Salford Station to carry the rusticators from the city up to the top of the hill where the food would be waiting and a brass band would be playing marches and waltzes. At the end of the day the steam train would return to the station and sound long blasts of its whistle to signal the revelers that it was time to return to the station or risk being stranded in the country. It is held the first Saturday in September after Memorial Day Weekend. All proceeds of the event go to benefit local charity and mission works.
