Witness a clash of cultures as historical reenactors bring the Battle of Bushy Run to life! Learn what caused Native American warriors and British soldiers to take up arms against each other during a two-day battle in August 1763 during Pontiac’s War. Discover what life was like on the frontier for European settlers and Native peoples alike in this annual historical reenactment.

NEW EVENTS & SCHEDULE THIS YEAR including morning historical demonstrations, eighteenth century military camps, a Native American village, a refugee camp, a sutler trade area, a fashion show, live historical music, a children’s area, concession stand, and more!

**This year, the two-day Bushy Run Battle reenactment will be split into two days with one reenactment on each day (a reenactment of the first day's battle in the afternoon on August 4th and the second day's battle reenactment occurring in the afternoon on the 5th). This means there will only be one reenactment per day. This will be a change from the previous years of conducting both day's battle reenactments on both Saturday and Sunday (two reenactments per day equaling to four reenactments in total). This change is being made to accommodate for the added historical demonstrations and musical performances that will be taking place in the morning on both Saturday and Sunday and to maintain historical accuracy.**

Cost:
$10 — Adults
