Re-enactments and Demonstrations

Join us on Saturday and Sunday, August 26th and 27th, as almost 2000 years of warfare comes 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 the participants, who will be dressed in period costumes and uniforms that will transport you back in time.
