Event  Schedule 2017 




Fort Morgan Historic Site is the location of several events throughout the year showcasing the history of the site and the local region. Living history interpreters and re-enactors gather together during special events to recreate the life of the fort's men and women. During June and July, uniformed interpreters guide visitors through the arches of the fort and provide insight into the lives of those who once walked its pathways. Every Tuesday night during those same months, weather permitting, visitors are also allowed a rare chance to view the fort during twilight hours. Instead of reading about history, experience it with all your senses from the crackle of a fire to the thunderous roar of cannon! 

For a current listing of this year's events, click on the Event Schedule above.
