The annual Lewis and Clark Festival is held in June, and we encourage you to discover the legacy of Lewis and Clark.
Watch history come alive through re-enactments, storytelling, and music at this event celebrating the tenacious, courageous, and legacy-making journey of the Corps of Discovery. The Lewis and Clark Festival incorporates elements of the hardship, discovery, and adventure of the expedition that opened the American West. Opening the festival and throughout the ceremonies are the black powder gun salute, Newfoundland dogs (ancestors of Seaman, the faithful dog of Merriweather Lewis), and live music. A boat cruise at Gates of the Mountains caps off this amazing weekend.
Saturday’s Festival events are free to the public, with a jam-packed day filled with fun family activities. Enjoy learning his story!
