Centennial Village Hosts Civil War Weekend, Sept. 22-23

Here comes the cavalry! Centennial Village Museum’s Civil War Weekend takes place Saturday, September 22, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, September 23, noon to 4 p.m.  During the event, Costumed reenactors set their tents up on the southeastern corner of the 8-acre outdoor living history museum and live as they would have during the Civil War—many using historic wares true to the time period. 

Both days of the event will include a battle reenactment at 1 p.m., complete with guns and cannon. Visitors can also watch marching drills and check out the tent area and cooking station during the museum’s public hours. 

The event also features home tours, blacksmithing and print shop demonstrations.

The museum is only open for two other public events later this year—the annual Howl-O-Ween trick-or-treat on October 20 and 21, 3 to 7 p.m., and Homesteader’s Holiday on December 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Admission to the museum during its Civil War Weekend is $18 for a family of five or $8 per adult, $6 per senior, and $5 per child. For more information about this and other City of Greeley Museums events, visit or call 970-350-9220.
