What is Civil War Weekend?

This annual special event brings the history of the American Civil War to life. Held the last weekend in September, Civil War Weekend is two action-filled days of battle re-enactments, military drills, medical care situations, period music and food, demonstrations, and more. The weekend spectacle involves more than 500 re-enactors. And each year features a different historic scenario crucial to the outcome of the war.

Programs and activities abound for children and adults alike. Interact, explore and engage your entire family in the experience.

The next Civil War Weekend will be held September 24-25, 2016. It will be the 26th year that Wade House has held this event.

Experience this 1860s clash of arms between Union and Confederate troops at Civil War Weekend. Watch hundreds of soldiers — cavalry, infantry and artillery — struggle across the field in this re-enacted conflict depicted with startling accuracy and passion.
