Fall Encampment at Locust Grove

recurring event

A Simple Revolutionary Weekend. The Fall Encampment is an opportunity for the public to enjoy the festival-like atmosphere of a late harvest camp as the American and British armies go into winter quarters. Hawkers, sutlers, entertainers, gawkers, local gentry, farmers, and all the citizens for miles around congregate to offer wares and entertainment, seek pleasure and a spectacle, and most importantly be part of one of the most important local events they may see in their lives during the 18th century. Far more than only a military encampment, it is a rare opportunity for local folks to have access to such a large event. We'll have musical and other entertainment, trade and military demonstrations, sutlers and vendors, food and drink sellers along with military and civilian living historians. Note: This Revolutionary War re-enactor event is this year's stand-in for the annual 18th Century Market Fair, which will return in 2022.
