The American Liberty Festival is returning to Phoenix!

Feb. 26th-27th, 2016



It would seem that the entire nation is riveted by debates over the intent of the Constitution, the nature of the Bill of Rights, separation of powers, the vision of the Founders and the role of government. These are serious issues. They beg the questions "What is Liberty? Who fought for it? Why did they do so? Who did they do it for?"

We Make History is filling this educational void by using creative, inspirational, engaging and highly interactive, living history to present those who fought and sacrificed for liberty and actually brought about the birth of the United States of America. Our family-friendly living history team portrays the soldiers and civilians of both sides of the American Revolution and creates a multi-dimensional program that is exciting, inspirational, thought provoking and suitable for all ages!

Inspirational education is what We Make History is all about.


Our 6th American Liberty Festival will be held February 26th & 27th at 16401 N. 43rd Ave. on property belonging to Northwest Christian School in Phoenix. This inspirational event will be a multi-dimensional immersion experience for all ages into the era of the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers as together we experience the birth of the United States through military encampments and training (both American and British!), live period music, fashion shows, medical displays, civilian demonstrations as per circa 1776, children's games and activities, battle reenactments, training with wooden muskets and meeting famous Americans such as General George Washington. A video of highlights from our 2014 Phoenix Liberty Festival may be viewed here.

Friday, February 26th - Open exclusively to pre-registered school groups of 20 or more from 9:00AM-12:30PM. Space is limited.

Saturday, February 27th - Open to all from 11:00AM-3:30PM. Passes may be purchased on site. Please see a schedule below.

Each Day: Enjoy, learn and be inspired by Battle reenactments, Historic Fashion Shows, Medical Demos, 18th Century Music, Learning Military Drill and interacting with the soldiers and civilians of circa 1776! All activities are family-friendly and educational for all ages. Passes are $12 each at the gate though ages three and under are FREE and do not need a pass. Pop, Bottled Water, Betsy Ross Flags, snacks and souvenirs will be available for purchase on site. :o)

The American Liberty Festival (Phoenix Liberty Festival and Tucson Liberty Festival) is Arizona's only educational living history event devoted wholly to the American Revolution and showcases Arizona's own Revolutionary War Reenactors!

The American Liberty Festival is proudly brought to Phoenix and Tucson annually by We Make History and our Revolutionary War Team - the same people who bring you the annual American Heritage Festival in Queen Creek.

A Few Quotes from Persons Attending

I took my girls to the American Liberty Festival Revolution reenactment and I have to tell you that hearing George Washington speak was extremely moving.

I totally fell into the experience and being able to ask him what he would think of what is going on now was like going to your father for advice.

I almost cried when it was over - I truly wish we had a George Washington to lead us now- we need him more than ever.

I can see how he had such a loyal following. I wish we had politicians that wanted to contribute to their country like he did, instead of seeing what they can get from it. :(

Thank you for all the hard work that you do. We hope to go to more events in the future.

Here's to many more years! :D

Our kids loved our visit!  Thank you so much for having something that the West side schools can participate in.

I was very excited and grateful to see the Liberty Festival at 43rd and Bell- it really made for a fantastic trip that completely tied into so many 5th grade Standards, and more importantly, brought history to life for my kids. 

Thanks again!

This is just a quick note to thank you for the privilege of participating in the American Liberty Festival last weekend.

It was a wonderful experience and all of your associates were a joy and a delight to get to know.

I can't remember having worked with a better group of dedicated people !

Again, thanks so much for allowing me to participate in the fun last weekend.

Best Always,

Thank you for the fun event.  My kids had a great time and my 11 year old son is excited about one day participating in a battle.

We home school. This year and next year we are studying American History. We just happened to be in the middle of the Revolutionary War during your wonderful event. 
Thank you again for all the hard work and bringing history alive.
