2019 Battle of Deep Creek Reenactment
Experience the Battle of Deep Creek Reenactment on Memorial Day Weekend, May 25-26, 2019 at Deep Creek Farms just outside of Spokane Washington. Hear the crash and boom of the artillery. Feel the weight of the rifles and packs that the soldiers carried. Meet the fine ladies in their gorgeous dresses. Watch as battles are reenacted, and honor the 700,000 men who died for their beliefs. The Battle of Deep Creek, as it’s called, has become a staple of Deep Creek Farm on Memorial Day weekend. Organized in part by the Washington Civil War Association, it brings in hundreds of spectators and volunteers who honor and teach many of the Civil War’s bloodiest skirmishes.

SUNDAY NIGHT SPECIAL: BLACK POWDER LIGHT SHOW AND LANTERN WALK
Admission will be $5 per person. Cash only please. Join us on Sunday evening at 8:30 pm for a very unique, exciting, and moving Civil War experience! We’ll kick things off with a bang in the most awe-inspiring light show on this side of the Mississippi as the valley is shaken and illuminated with artillery fire and flames leap from lines of massed muskets.
Once you’ve quenched your thirst for explosions, travel time with our guides and take a peek at the somber nightime camps of the armies. Be a fly on a wall at a Civil War field hospital, watching the overworked surgeon attend to his patients; listen in on a conversation between a young soldier and a chaplain; join a soldier at his lonely picket post.
