Fort Ritchie Community Center opened its doors to the public in September 2008. The facility was built through funding provided by the Pen Mar Development Corp. and Corporate Office Properties Trust, the company redeveloping the former Army base.

Fort Ritchie Community Center serves Pen Mar, Cascade, Blue Ridge Summit and surrounding communities in Maryland and Pennsylvania with a wide range of activities, as well as fitness and meeting facilities. The center will be open for tours throughout Saturday's festivities.
