Join us on Saturday and Sunday, June 9th and 10th as 2000 years of warfare come to life in a weekend of scripted battle re-enactments and demonstrations. Viking raids, medieval duels, gladiatorial combat, musketry skills and cannonades are some of the demonstrations and exhibitions that will be available. You will be able to interact with all of the participants who will be dressed in period costumes and uniforms that will transport you back to that time in history. This year visitors will have the opportunity to have their picture taken in the old west, have their fortunes foretold like the commanders of old, or meet a Viking or a Chivalrous Knight. Visitors will be able to walk into the camps and chat with soldiers from various eras. Food trucks will be available on site throughout the weekend.
