We are currently researching and booking the absolutely best historical interpreters to perform for you in our 25th annual History Comes Alive Festival.

Put us on your calendar and stay tuned for the exciting news of who’s coming and where the shows will be held.

Live performances will be held outdoors in the evenings and indoors during the day.  Bring lawn seating for outdoor shows. Most indoor shows may require prior registration.

Get ready to laugh, cry and flat out have a great time at this Festival of non-stop live history and fun for the whole family. Daily live shows and more are performed in costume by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. And most all the shows are FREE!

There will be great storytelling, lots to laugh about, and deep secrets revealed. You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because you’re a part of the show. It’s not just history – it’s personal.
