September 22-24, 2017
Veterans Memorial Park, Bay City
This annual event held on the banks of the Saginaw River in Veterans
Memorial Park draws re-enactors from all over the country to dress, work and live as people did from several eras in
Michigan's past. Representing time periods from pre-contact Native Americans, Revolutionary War, French and Indian War,
Civil War, and the great World Wars, this free, family-oriented, educational event is a wonderful way to look back at
simpler if not more difficult times. It is held the last weekend in September, and brings in thousands
of people every year including school groups from all over the area.
