Getting there


There is ample parking, but complimentary hotel shuttles will continue to be available. (More information on that to come.) If you decide to drive, please use Spring Avenue to get to the parking areas. We’ll provide maps when you check in, so you can see where parking and all of the evening activities will take place. 

Things to do


Exhibitors will be in the Refectory.  

Food and Beverage: 

As part of your registration, each attendee will receive one (pre-ordered) entrée. Coffee and dessert trucks will also be complimentary, no need to pre-order those items. There will be plenty of additional items to purchase separately, including beer and wine.

The food and drink vendors that you can look forward to are: 

  • Road Hawg BBQ  - Will be served in Tent A, with the alcoholic drinks. 

  • CJ’s Food Truck - Located near tent B.

  • Mexican Food Truck  - Located near tent B. (They'll also be serving Churros!)

  • Beverage Truck for Coffee and Smoothies

  • Donut Truck


We will be entertained by the popular George Mason’s University’s 8th Green Machine Regiment Band. You won’t want to miss their very lively brass band!  

Dearest Home, a local Civil War era musical group will also perform. Together, they harmonize to bring you sounds from the Civil War, bringing you closer to the spirt of the Civil War. 

Lee’s Headquarters' Visits 

If you haven’t had the chance, now is the time to get a look at Lee’s Headquarters, with recently updated signage and interpretation. We’ll have staff and caretakers stationed to tell you about the history of Lee’s Headquarters and answer any questions about the restoration of this historic property.  

Seminary Ridge Museum 

Throughout the evening, you’ll be able to visit the Seminary Ridge Museum, including the Cupola.
