Harry Goodman Battlefield Adventure Day

March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 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 afternoon 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 troops. 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. The afternoon’s activities will conclude with an exciting mock battle reenactment that includes the children, a live-fire cannon demonstration, and fresh hot apple crisp made by the participants. The young recuits will “muster out” and receive their pay for their service. Click here for a complete list of activities.
*please note, no lunch is served with this program. No unaccompanied children; a parent or responsible adult must remain on site.
