WWII Weekend is one of New England’s premier living history events, providing the public with an interactive and educational WWII experience that is difficult to come by. Participants will have the chance to examine and learn about multiple different kinds of World War II vehicles and weapons, as well as how the soldiers of that era lived, by walking through Axis and Allies encampments and interacting with the living historians. To top it all off, however, attendees will have the opportunity to view a live World War II battle reenactment, as well as flamethrower and weapon demonstrations. That’s not all, however; each day there are different interactive activities that attendees can participate in and experience. So whether you’re a history buff, or you’re just looking for something to do over the weekend with the family, WWII Weekend is the place to be!

Q: Is this event kid-friendly?
A: Yes! But be aware that there will be loud explosions similar to fireworks during some of our weapons demonstrations and the battle each day. If your kids don’t like fireworks, then it is advisable to provide them with hearing protection.
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on the property, unless it is a service animal. Our show might cause panic in pets due to the use of pyrotechnics, gunshots, etc.
Q: I bought a Saturday Ticket, can I use it on Sunday?
A: No, you can only use the ticket on the day that you purchased it. You can only use that ticket once and there is no readmittance.
Q: I bought a weekend pass, can I leave and come back in again?
A: Yes! Our weekend pass program is designed to be as convenient as possible and give the most value for your buck. Come and go as you please each day of the show.
Q: Can I get in/climb on that vehicle?
A: We would generally say no. However, as there are vehicles owned by both individuals and organizations you should ask permission before you do anything. Remember: when in doubt, don’t do it.
Q: Will there be food available to purchase during the show?
A: Yes, we will have an extensive concessions area with many different kinds of food vendors.
Q: Will there be any militaria that I can buy and bring home?
A: Yes, we will have a very large military flea market onsite. You can buy everything from toys to actual uniforms and equipment.
Q: Are those real guns/explosions?
A: Our firearms are simulated which means at our show they can only fire blanks. No one is really getting shot at and this is all hollywood magic. The explosions might look real but they are all done by professional and licensed pyrotechnicians to give you the closest thing to a real explosion as possible.
Q: Are those real Military Flamethrowers?
A: Yes, all of our flamethrowers are real and have seen combat at one time or another. Also yes, the fire that you see coming from these devices is real actual fire. You’ll be able to feel the heat when these devices discharge.
