2019 Cass River Colonial Encampment

Rate This Event

 

Experience the Cass River Colonial Encampment on July 20-21, 2019 at Frankenmuth River Place Shops in Frankenmuth, Michigan. The Cass River Colonial Encampment is an 18th Century encampment of historical reenactors representing British, French and American troops and militia of both the French & Indian War and Revolutionary War eras.

Along the banks of the Cass River and on the grounds of the River Place Shops in Frankenmuth, hundreds will gather to reenact American’s war for independence at the Cass River Colonial Encampment. Each day about 11:00 a.m. there will be a mock battle between the redcoats and their Native American allies against the American colonials and their French allies.

Cass River Colonial Encampment

There is a quarter mile of beautiful Cass River frontage and sloping banks around the historic wooden covered bridge area which makes for perfect campsites for the Cass River Colonial Encampment. Against this ideal backdrop, families can witness our national heritage up close and personal by stepping back in time to view four staged battles taking place Saturday and Sunday. This is a great learning opportunity for youngsters of all ages.

In addition to witnessing the key tactical battles and the exploits of early American explorers, guests can experience 18th century colonial America, including military camps, troop inspections, flag ceremonies, period concerts, games, fashion shows and many other events. Visitors can also shop for souvenirs being sold by historical vendors at more than 30 tent and camp sites.

Kilt-wearing Scots will charge colonial soldiers during Cass River Colonial Encampment. The grounds are perfect, the reenactors are really into the roles they play – and are good at answering questions and explaining things to youngsters of all ages. The Cass River Colonial Encampment and it’s reenactors make history truly come to life.

Visit and tour military camps and shop at historical vendors:
Saturday: 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
Sunday: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
