Revolutionary War at Dollinger Family Farm

Dollinger Family Farm wants to take you back to 1775, when the 13 colonies were fighting for their independence from Great Britian.  As you meander through the town you’ll be able to smell the campfires and visit the people of the time. You’ll have a chance to see how they lived, dressed and prepared for war.

This Revolutionary War reenactment will give you an interpretation of the life of soldiers, civilians, woman and children during our country's war for Independence. This event will feature an interactive scavenger hunt for the public to be part of the event's “Spy Ring.” You’ll get a chance to see a wagon hold up by patrols that are looking for spies and see what it was like during a capture and interrogation of a spy! Lastly, their will be one Battle a day at 2pm which will be directly followed by a wounded solider being seen by the doctor on the field, followed by their horse demonstration.


Experience the Battle and witness history as the United States of America becomes a nation at Dollinger Family Farm! This event is for ages 12 & above and tickets are required for the re-enactment. Ticket is good for one general admission to the Battle Field for either Saturday or Sunday.  If attending both days, two tickets must be purchased.  Tickets purchased on site, the day of the event will be an additional $1.00.
Dates for the Revolutionary War Reenactment are October 7 & 8.
