Originally started in 1919 as a joint family reunion between the Brubaker Family and the Hershey Family, this reunion was jointly held between the two families for only two years.  After that, the family reunion was only of the Brubaker Family, starting in 1921.

Save for a four year interruption during World War II, the Brubaker Family Reunion has continued annually over the decades.
