Our event goal's is to tell the story of Operation Cobra, the offensive that allowed the Allied powers to breakout of the Normandy landing areas and push toward the heart of France.

  Our event has attractions for everyone. Spectators get up and close to the action with WWII battle reenactments (two on both Saturday and Sunday) that pits the American GI against the Germany Soldat. Our WWII period encampment and individual displays educate the public on how soldiers lived in the field and the gear they used. Meals will be provided for military reenactors and vehicle owners/ crew thanks to Phil Naud and his World War II field Kitchen.


  Military vehicles from various conflicts in the 20th Century will be on display with their proud owners, who are ready to answer any questions and provide a great photo opportunities. We also have a kids tent with many fun WWII theme activities that are fun and educational. Spectators will also have the chance to explore the Chesterfield Historical Village to learn about Chesterfield's local history.


  Last year we had a large turnout and hope to expand this year! We have a very cooperative venue, easy access from a major expressway and a local government that is on board. We hope to see you at the BREAKOUT!
