TIme: 10 am - 4 pm, flag raising 10:10 am

First Multicultural & Living History Event presented west of the Mississippi River and in the State of California. Annual artillery show and fundraiser that supports the Fort MacArthur Museum. The event is held on the weekend following the Fourth of July holiday. Various military organizations and groups (from ancient Roman Legionnaires to the Modern era) support the event. All group encampments are focused on accurately presenting life as it was in the past. The museum is located in Angels Gate Park, 3601 South Gaffey Street, in the historic harbor city of San Pedro, California. Old Fort MacArthur Days is a blank fire event. Many historical reenactment groups will be firing various weapons during the course of the event, and there will be a massed fire by cannons at the end of the day. Two groups of privateers will be on hand, the Rogue Privateers, and the Port Royal Privateers. The Rogue Privateers will raid for items and then auction them off to benefit the museum.
