Welcome to the public information
page for the Old Fort MacArthur Days event at the Fort
MacArthur Museum (OFMD) This event is a major fundraiser
for the museum and we greatly appreciate everyone who
participates in making this event a success.
OFMD began back in 1987 when the
museum sponsored a one day event to demonstrate the use
of antique canons and rifles. Over the years, the event
has morphed into a weekend village of professional
educators representing a timeline of world military
What you will see:
From the days of the Roman Legions to the Vietnam War,
more than 600 participants setup camps and demonstrate
what life was like during their represented time period.
Throughout the day there will be various battle and
equipment demonstrations from various groups competing
for awards (given at the end of the day on Sunday) and
looking to entertain visitors.
Free parking is available in parking areas
surrounding the museum, and it's a fairly short walk
from most lots. Uniformed guides will direct you to
available spaces, and we encourage people to carpool
