Family Day Living History

Join us at the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation Museum and Visitor Center for a weekend of family friendly programs and activities hosted by living historians.

Costumed living historians will host photography workshops, cooking demonstrations, muster in new recruits and practice drill, talk about the life of the average soldier and their equipment, have Civil War medicine displays, play period games and tell stories about life as a civilian during the American Civil War, cavalry with their horses will talk about the important roles of horses during the war, and much more!

Activities will begin in the morning and continue throughout the day. Though there are many family focused activities, everyone is welcome! Visitors are also welcome to hike the battlefield trails, pack a picnic to have at the site picnic tables that overlook the Valley, and visit our partners, Belle Grove Plantation and Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park.
