Put on your 1940s garb and celebrate victory!

Join us Memorial Day weekend as we honor local veterans and raise money for our education programs. Admission includes dinner, dancing, a live big band, and 2 hour open bar in our historic Big Barn. The World War II exhibit will also be open in the Distillery Museum during the event.

Honor Local Veterans

A local honor guard and band members will conduct a ceremony in honor of our veterans. Veterans receive a discount for event admission, and World War II veterans are invited to join us for free.

Enjoy Live Music and Lively Dancing

Original 1940s big band Wally Gingers Orchestra will perform some of the greatest hits from the war era, including tunes by Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, the Ames Brothers, and more! Dance along to the music or just sit back and enjoy. Click here for more about the Wally Gingers Orchestra.

Raise Money for Education Programs at West Overton

Students at Ramsay Elementary analyze real artifacts to learn about World War II

As the Greatest Generation disappears, younger people have a more distant connection to World War II. The war and other pieces of local history are a small part of school curricula, so it’s up to museums like us to share that history. By purchasing an event ticket, you are helping us bring more students to West Overton. You also enable us to create more hands-on programs to bring history to life for visitors young and old.
