History buffs and reenactors always flock to Midway Village Museum in Rockford every September for the annual World War II Days, but 2021's experience is going to be bigger than ever before!

If you've never gone to World War II Days at Midway Village Museum before, you totally should plan on changing that this year. Not only will it be an educational experience your whole family will love complete with historical demonstrations, displays, and vendors, but the party is really amping up this year in celebration of the 25th anniversary of World War II Days.

New Experiences Coming to Midway Village's 2021 World War II Days

Besides transforming the Midway Village campus and Victorian Village into the backdrop of a European village during World War II on September 18 and 19, 2021, visitors will be treated to more battle time segments (4 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday), a Victory Beer Garden featuring Pig Minds Brewing Co. beer and brats for purchase, and all veterans get free admission this year too!

Trust me, it is SO COOL to see over 1,000 reenactors reliving World War II battles that include real tanks, artillery, armored vehicles, and pyrotechnics on Midway Village's fields and you won't want to miss it.
