Spirit of ’45: Living History & Swing Dance

Sat. Aug. 13, 2022 | 3:00 PM – 10:00 PM
History Park

What is normally a two-day event, will be merged into one – a living history day and reenactment in the afternoon and a big band and swing dance in the evening.

The event captures the war and home front experience with exhibits and interactive activities for all ages including live big band music from the Swingin’ Blue Stars and Back in Time, swing dancing, a WWII tent city, vintage cars, 1940s-era children’s games, and more!

The event lasts into the evening with a USO-style swing dance that jumps and jives under the lights of History Park with music from the 18-piece band, The Swing Solution. This program has been developed in conjunction with the Keep Spirit of ‘45 Alive Bay Area chapter.
