Battlefield Adventure Day
April 8 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm
Harry Goodman Battlefield Adventure Day is an annual springtime event for the entire family held at the New Bern Battlefield Park, 300 Battlefield Trail. This Saturday event is filled with learning activities and living history. Young recruits and their parents are greeted by reenactors from the 5th, 7th, and 26th NC Regiments, 35th US Colored Troops, and artillery from McCullough Living History. The newly enlisted recruits participate in practice drills, Civil War period camp activities, crafts, and games. Adults and teens will enjoy living history presentations and a walking tour of the battlefield. A commissary lunch provided by Moore’s Barbecue and Country Biscuit will be served to all. The day’s activities will conclude with an exciting mock battle reenactment that includes the children and a live-fire cannon demonstration.
Registration begins middle of February. Check back on newbernhistorical.org for updates!
