CARTHAGE, Mo. — The Carthage Chamber of Commerce is currently seeking vendors for ‘Civil War Days’ that will be held on Saturday, May 21st from 10am-5pm on the historic square in downtown Carthage, MO.
Civil War Days will coincide with the 160th Anniversary of the Battle of Carthage reenactment that will take place on the Civil War Ranch. Over 700 reenactors will be on hand demonstrating to thousands of spectators to how this battle played out during the Civil War.
“With all of the activities going on outside of town, we wanted to create a fun downtown event that the visitors coming to our area could come and locally shop, eat, and explore all the fun things to do while they are in Carthage,” said Julie Reams, President of the Carthage Chamber of Commerce. “We are excited that we can bring a fun family event to the downtown area to the visitors and also to the community,” added Reams. “We are looking for crafters, any period piece vendors or those that want to do any demonstrations on our beautiful square.”
