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.
