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.

Features

  • Camp sites featuring Native Americans through the Vietnam War
  • Sutlers' Shopping Row
  • Ma & Pa's Kettle Korn
