Armed Forces Day
We are holding our annual Armed Forces Day celebration on Saturday, May 21, with our Living Historians doing an hourly artillery salute from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on the site’s Parade Ground near the Visitor Center at Barracks 1, 630 South Oakes.
This event will be free to all and the site’s ten display and exhibit buildings will be open all day from 900 am to 500 pm. Donations are always accepted.
In honor of the day and our armed forces, any active-duty member and their family members may enjoy the fort at no charge!
Members of the fort’s living history program will have a display of items on the porch of Barracks 1 as part of Armed Forces Day.
