A ten-day - two weekend festival of 22+ FREE interactive shows and more performed by nationally acclaimed historical interpreters. Non-stop live history and fun for the whole family. It’s fun…it’s engaging…and it costs you absolutely nothing to attend. A different show outdoors each night and more indoors during the day. Schedule
Meet Davy Crockett - the backwoods frontiersman who almost became President; Susan B. Anthony, the disenfranchised spinster who challenged the law of the land, Herman Melville - the whale ship deckhand whose voyages became world classics; Malcolm X, the ghetto hustler turned human rights activist. And re-live The Legends of Camelot.
We’ll hear these "Legends" spin their own tales - telling their truth, as they see it. They will challenge our assumptions, our facts, and our understandings. Then you, the audience, get to separate “truth” from “fiction” by challenging them with questions. more . . .
