Pennsic runs for 17 days, starting at the end of July. The ending date is the second full weekend in August. (Prior to 2007, Pennsic War used to begin and end one week later than it now does.)
Depending on the calendar, the opening day of Pennsic may be as early as July 24 or as late as July 30. Because of leap years, the progression of starting dates is NOT consistent.
