Welcome to the 26th
 Galesburg Heritage Days!

See the excitement, feel the history.

Admission is free at the
26th Galesburg Heritage Days
August 14th-16th, 2020
Located at Lake Storey Park
Galesburg, Illinois

In this our 26th year, we are excited to bring you one of the Midwest's largest and most unique free admission living history events to be held at historic Lake Storey Park in Galesburg Illinois. Lake Storey is on the far north side of town, with 430 acres of wooded and rolling lands, all camps are on the shores of a 130 acre lake. Lake Storey Park is an absolutely beautiful location.

Featuring both a Pre-1840 Early American Colonial/Frontier Rendezvous, and a thoroughly fielded Civil War Battle Encampment/ Reenactment, The 26th Galesburg Heritage Days is held at two separate but close venues at Lake Storey Park, all on the same weekend.

Come share in the excitement with almost 1,000 fellow reenactors-living historians and almost 50 merchants and sutlers. Make plans to join us at The 26th Galesburg Heritage Days, a free public admission family friendly event.

New for 2020!
