Every other year in September, the Battle of Carnifex Ferry is reenacted on the same ground as the original conflict. This reenactment is hosted by Co. A, of the 36th Virginia Infantry, West Virginia's oldest and most authentic living history organization. The event attracts hundreds of the country's best Civil War reenactors from several states and has been heralded as one of the finest small reenactments in the eastern United States.
The two day event includes various living history demonstrations such as camp life, military drill, and a reenactment of the Federal assault on the center of the Confederate line.
Visitors to the park are encouraged to enter the camps and interact with the reenactors prior to the battle reenactment. In fact, walking tours, led by one of the reenactors, are given each day.
