​Civil War Days

Friday–Sunday, September 17–19, 2021

San Benito County Historical Park
8300 Airline Highway, Tres Pinos

Throughout the weekend, witness skirmishes in the streets followed by imprisonment of Chivs, Copperheads, and other Confederate sympathizers during the day, and then spend the evening experiencing life during the 1860s, including Contra Dancing and interacting with the re-enactors at their encampments. This all takes place at the SBC Historical Society just south of Tres Pinos.
