World War I Centennial Weekend

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I in 2018 from 10 am-5 pm Aug. 18 & 19. The “Great War,” as WWI was then called, raged for three years before the US entered the conflict in 1917. America’s participation tipped the balance in favor of the Allied powers and helped end the war in November 1918.

During World War I Weekend, explore the ways this conflict shaped the world we know today and learn about Minnesota’s role in the war. Visit with costumed interpreters and reenactors, watch military demonstrations, stand in a recreated WWI-style trench, and experience what life was like for Minnesotans during this crucial time
