Welcome to the Gallery

of the

2009 American Heritage Festival

"A patriotic and educational living history celebration featuring diverse facets of our American Heritage including both civilian and military aspects as well as historic allies and enemies ranging from the Colonial era through the late 20th century."

Proudly Presented in Queen Creek, Arizona each November by

We Make History


















Manifest Destiny

2009 was "mission accomplished" as exciting, creative and innovative historic education was presented to thousands of students, families and visitors from around Arizona, The Southwest and the entire country.

Our 18th and 19th century encampments have grown dramatically featuring everything from historic military to historic music to historic trades to diverse portrayals of historic personas.

Faces for the Ages: A Few of Our Living Historians in Action

Below is our first stage of photographic postings from the 2009 American Heritage Festival.

The 2009 AHF was our largest ever and thus what you see below is only a sampling of our 300+ living historians. Many more pics will gradually be added so do stay tuned!

We look forward to seeing everyone for our 8th annual American Heritage Festival to be held in Queen Creek, AZ from November 19th-21st, 2010.

Though many submitted excellent batches of appreciated photos, special thanks go to the following photographers  for their particularly significant contributions in augmenting our own stock. Between us all the number of photos compiled numbered in the thousands with many good ones to choose from, edit, re-size and even to use as inspiration for works of art - before creating this Gallery. I believe you will discover not only a selection of the best of the photos but also a wide representation of the people and happenings that made up the 2009 American Heritage Festival. GW

Thanks to

Mrs. H., Deborah P., Mr. Stark, Amanda J., Sarah M., Katrina U., Mike C., Chris M., Holly P., William L.
