We’re talking several WWI battle re-enactments with live action, vintage weapons and machinery, blank bullets and pyrotechnic simulated explosions! And that’s just for starters, also enjoy…

- Free family joyrides in vintage cars
- The hiss of steam from traction engines
- Replica trenches, complete with authentic weapons and sleeping quarters to wander through
- Displays of military memorabilia, uniforms, and civilian clothing from WWI
- Authentic Mess Tent for refreshments plus plenty of other simple, fresh fare on sale
- Stories, photographs and displays of locals who served in WWI
- Local musicians performing songs from bygone days

Bring along the whole family and get hands on!

Make a day or a weekend of it - picnics welcome or indulge in the delicious offerings at an array of eateries around the grounds.

Gates open 9 am – 4 pm each day
