Civil War re-enactment
Join us Memorial weekend for the Sesquicentennial commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War and 30th year of Civil War Battles and Encampment at Roaring Camp. Experience the sights and sounds of cavalry charges, musket fire and artillery shells in one of the longest-running historic reenactments in the West. Ride a 1880s iron horse through an ancient redwood forest and witness skirmishes as the steam train ascends Bear Mountain.
Battles are at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Monday. Roaring Camp’s steam trains depart each day at 11 a.m., 12:30, 2:00 and 3:30 p.m. and pass through the battlefield on the way to Bear Mountain where they encounter skirmishes at the summit. A chuck wagon barbecue is served from noon to 3 p.m.
