Southern California’s Largest Living History Event
The Huntington Beach Historical Society is proud to host the 30th annual Civil War Days Living History Event in Huntington Beach Central Park during the 160th anniversary of America’s Civil War. Living history events like Civil War Days allow people to experience vivid recreations of life in our past in ways that would not otherwise be possible, and learn about some of the most important moments in our collective history. This event is facilitated by hundreds of dedicated volunteers portraying people from all walks of life, and as always, our events are free to the public. Come out to see this grand display this Labor Day Weekend!
