Lawrence County History Festival & Pow Wow in April

If you’re a living history buff, you won’t want to miss the Lawrence County History Festival & Pow Wow. The 3-day festival is a veritable, well, festival of living history demonstrations, drills, and skirmishes that cover events from the Revolutionary War all the way through World War II. It also includes the exhibits, stories, and demonstrations from Native Americans

Visitors can listen to stories, visit soldier encampments from the Civil War and World War II, visit a buffalo hunter’s encampment, participate in children’s games, see a wild west stage hold up, learn about lacemaking, and talk to a wide variety of historical characters.

The festival is April 16 – 18 in Murray Forest Park in Bedford, Indiana. Saturday is the first day open to the public, Friday being their “school day.” The schedule is as follows:

  • Friday (School day) 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

  • Saturday 10:00 am – Dark
  • Sunday 12:00 noon – 4:00 pm.
