Events

As a Living History Group, we attend a large number of WWII and 1940s-themed events throughout the year, including parades, airshows, swing dances, convoys, veteran's reunions, and public displays. We hope to educate the public about this period in history through living history displays, exhibitions of artifact collections, public ceremonies and events, and educational programs. Following is a schedule of events where the AAF Living History Group can be seen.
