Recognized as one of the Midwest's largest living history festivals, come share in the excitement and make plans to join us August 16-18 2013, at Galesburg Heritage Days. A family event, featuring both pre-1840 early American Colonial Frontier Rendezvous, and a thoroughly fielded Civil War Battle Reenactment/Encampment, along with dozens of unique period merchants...all within walking distance of each other.

...Now is the time to plan on attending the 19th Annual Galesburg Heritage Days living History Festival, August 16-18 2013, at beautiful Lake Story Park in Galesburg Illinois. Offering 411 acres of woodland and prairie plus a 130 acre lake and your choice of primitive or modern amenities and the best period shopping available. We have one of the most beautiful and truly unique event locations in the Midwest, drawing well over 600 reenactors  from 14 different states.

Galesburg loves company and we would love to see you at Heritage Days.  To become a fan and get the latest information check us out on Facebook at Galesburg Heritage Days or e-mail
