Re-enactments and Demonstrations

Join us to watch as 2000 years of warfare comes to life in a weekend of scripted battle re-enactments and demonstrations.

Watch re-enactments and demonstrations, Viking raids, medieval duels, gladiatorial combat, musketry and cannonades! Interact with heroes of battle dressed in spectacular period costumes and uniforms. Be transported back in time and witness history being altered... right before your eyes.

There’s adventure and drama for all ages at the Summer Skirmish. Pose for a family photo in the Old West or meet a Viking or Chivalrous Knight! Wander into camps and talk strategy with soldiers from days gone by.

Battleworn spectators can take a break and feast at one of the many food trucks parked on site throughout the weekend. The museum will also be opened. Please note the outdoor activities may be cancelled due to rain. We will update Facebook and Twitter.

Food trucks will be available on site throughout the weekend.
