EVENT: D-Day Conneaut – The Largest Annual D-Day Reenactment in the U.S., August 17-19, 2017 http://bit.ly/2sbnZzS
D-Day Conneaut is fast becoming America’s premier living history event by being the most realistic and educational annual reenactment of D-Day – June 6th, 1944.
Since 1999, this annual recreation of the amphibious Allied landings upon the beaches of Normandy, France, has thrilled thousands of spectators.
The event occurs within the beautifully kept grounds of Conneaut Township Park, Conneaut, Ohio, and assembles over 1,200 re-enactors from across the United States and Canada.
Remarkably, the 250 yard long beach and sloping adjacent terrain closely resemble Omaha Beach in Normandy, France.
