The Battle of Moores Creek is held the last weekend in February each year. Re-enactors representing both Patriot and Loyalist militias demonstrate military camp life, musket and artillery firing and broadsword use.

You will see the following items: a blacksmith, a lady spinning wool, a powder horn maker, children playing with ring toys, men making bullets, a man and woman cooking sausage, a doctor holding a gun & medical wagon, a man playing taps, the firing muskets after the laying of the wreaths, solders at attention.
