Fort Fisher Event Saturday, June 12th: Exploring Our Historical Landscape

Next event: June 12th from 10am to 4pm.

The Fort Fisher State Historic Site will be holding “2nd Saturday” programs on the second Saturday of June, July, and August 2010, in a statewide initiative to partner our cultural history with our local arts communities. In these exciting programs, all North Carolina Historic Sites and Museums will join together to celebrate our arts and heritage in a unique way. Every “2nd Saturday” this summer, North Carolinians should look to their local State Historic Sites or state museums for fun, innovative events!

On Saturday, June 12, Fort Fisher will explore the historical landscape around us, using an artistic lens. Local artists and photographers, particularly those who work with landscapes or seascapes, will sell their work on site, and possibly demonstrate their craft. Visitors will not only be encouraged to visit artists’ booths, but also will be able to walk through a recreated Civil War landscape with a small Confederate encampment. Costumed tours, period music, and small arms weapons demonstrations are offered throughout the day.
