Military Tanks and Armored Vehicles | K9 Demos |  Veteran Interviews | Living History Unit Displays and Reenactments | Historical Displays | Veteran Support Groups | Children’s Activities | Food Vendors | Flame Thrower Demos and More!

As in the past, we will showcase 50+ vehicles on display with an additional dozen that are demonstrated throughout the weekend.  Among the vehicles on display are over a two hundred living historians who bring the event to life.

We invite all veterans and support organizations to put on displays each year. They, along with many historical displays will be in our main building and the outdoor  areas surrounding it. We will again have food trucks so our visitors will have diverse choices for lunch. Please come out and support the NMAW!
