Have you ever wondered what life was like for the first settlers along the Georgia coast?  The Fort Frederica Living History Festival is a great way to experience 1736 for yourself and admission is FREE!

If you’re anywhere near the 31522 this weekend, remember The Fort Frederica Living History Festival is running this Saturday from 11am-4pm.  Turn off your electronic devices (minus the gps map that gets you there) and tell the kids that time machines really do exist!  With much to do, it is highly recommended that you spend a little time with the Scottish Highlanders.  Get the scoop on beer bribery and the many ways to wear a kilt.  Don’t let the sporadic musket firings scare you off… it’s just the real-life ghosts wandering around an old, abandoned British settlement.

NEW LECTURES ADDED FOR 2013!

-Mary Musgrove

-African-Americans in Spanish Florida

-The Life of A Soldier

(A group of volunteers display period costumes, which are privately owned and maintained by the actors themselves.)

(The 42nd Regiment of Foot puts their best foot forward and dazzles the crowd with re-enactments and role-playing.)

(A tent encampment is overshadowed by an ancient oak at the Fort Frederica National Monument.)

Thank you to the costumed colonials and community volunteers who make this memorable experience possible!
