New to Pennsylvania's wide array of reenacting and living history events is Schaefferstown's WWII Weekend. The event will be held July 27th & 28th, 2019 at the Historic Schaeffer Farm in honor of the town's 222 men and women who served their country during WWII.
The event will include two days of period encampments, military vehicles, weapons demonstrations, swing dance performances, and reenactment battles replicating combat during Operation Cobra in the Normandy hedgerows of July 1944. The event will also feature a Veterans Headquarters where local WWII veterans will be present to share their war stories. Admission is free to all members of the public!

For those who wish to participate in the public battle, your group must have their own insurance OR you must sign the liability waiver which you can download, print, and sign so it may be handed in at check-in with your signed WWII Weekend Rules. Those NOT participating in the battle do not need to have insurance to attend as living historians or the battle waiver.
Each re-enactor will be required to pay a $5 cash registration fee at check in. This fee helps EPRG and HSI cover administrative expenses for the event.
