The American Heritage Festival is a grand scale, highly interactive educational presentation of diverse civilian and military aspects of historic American life from Colonial Days through modern times as portrayed by a large and experienced cast of historical interpreters assembled from around the country.
We are the largest and most diverse educational living history event in the Western United States, with something of interest for everyone. We also feature Arizona's original and largest display and battle reenactment of the American Revolution. Come, learn and be inspired!
Included are reenactments, dramatic portrayals of both famous and everyday men, women, children, musicians, artisans, craftsmen, singers, colonists, pioneers, mountain men, soldiers and more ranging from Colonial times, the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers through Frontier and Pioneer days, the Civil War, the Old West and on into the 20th century, the World Wars and the Vietnam era. An 18th century style church service in the fields based on the "Great Awakening", speeches by famous Americans of the past, live historic music, an historic fashion show and of course battle reenactments are just a few of the many special features. Historic men, women and children are portrayed in diverse roles with something of interest to all. Historic merchants offer a unique shopping experience.
