The Siege of Fort Watauga, originally scheduled for May 16 & 17 has been rescheduled to coincide with the Autumn Heritage Celebration and Colonial Harvest Event on November 14 and 15. Join us on Veterans Day weekend as we honor our ancestors and bring the 18th century frontier to life!


In the summer of 1776 the Watauga settlement was ablaze with war. Join us as 200 living history educators present this dramatic retelling of the Cherokee attacks in the Watauga Valley. Visit the living history camps, shop with period vendors, and witness battle re-enactments both days. Hear the rattle of muskets, smell the campfire smoke and see history come to life at the Siege of Fort Watauga. Contact the park for a detailed schedule.
