2018 Conneaut D-Day August 17-18, 2018
Mark your calendars! The 2018 D-Day event is scheduled to take place August 17 – 18, 2018. The beaches and Lake Erie shore in Conneaut, Ohio will be transformed into a living tribute to honor the veterans of WWII. If you haven’t had the opportunity to view this event – you are missing it. Rain or Shine, this the largest D-Day living history event in the country! The reenactment will feature over 1800 reenactors from across the country and even Canada! In 2016, D-Day organizers reported that they proudly hosted 150 WWII veterans at the event.
Come and be a part of this Admission FREE event and experience what people call the most realistic and educational D-Day reenactment of the WWII era.
The event occurs within the beautifully kept grounds of Conneaut Township Park, in Conneaut, Ohio. Just off Interstate 90 (Exit 241), 5 miles west of the Pennsylvania border, Conneaut is just about half way between Cleveland Ohio and Erie Pennsylvania. There’s plenty of free parking with speedy shuttles. *Entry is free but donations of any size are always appreciated as we are 100% funded by donations.
Though D-Day Conneaut is a very popular event, Conneaut Township park has plenty of room to comfortably stroll around and see amazing sites.
There is no onsite parking at the park. There are ample parking areas around town served by our speedy shuttles both Friday and Saturday. There is no shuttle service on Thursday. (Parking is available Thursday only on side streets around the event.)
Mobility impaired persons and veterans of WWII-Vietnam can park at the CN Dock Company on Day Street, which a wheelchair accessible van will frequent approximately every 15-20 minutes.
