More than 10,000 historical re-enactors, history enthusiasts, collectors and the general public from the United States and Canada are expected to attend the 48th annual Kalamazoo Living History Show. The show attracts over 200 of the finest artisans and vendors of pre-1890 living history supplies and related crafts from throughout the United States and Canada. Other highlights include children’s activities, Native American dancing and singing, and many artisans who will demonstrate their crafts.

What To Expect

The event will be open Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is $9.00 for a single-day adult pass and $13.00 for a weekend adult pass, but kids 12 and under get in for free with a parent.

Kalamazoo has a rich history as being the native home to the Hopewell Tradition which led to the Potawatomi people making this land theirs before eventually slowly being pushed out in the mid to late 1600s by European settlers.

This seems like a really interesting event if you want to learn about local history and try and connect to the original roots of our area.
