For more than 40 years, Fort Clark Days has taken place at Fort Clark Springs in Brackettville, Texas. More than 100 living historians demonstrate skills from the past and educate our visitors about the history of southwest Texas. In addition to our living historians, we have arts & crafts and food vendors, and live entertainment.
Our 2023 was a great success with 120 living historians, 4 law enforcement groups, 2 helicopters, 6 community service and non-profit groups, 30 arts & crafts and food vendors, a farmer's market, more than 40 musicians, a street dance and a movie in the historic Post Theater. There was indeed something for everyone!
Fort Clark Days is sponsored by Fort Clark Springs Community Council, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and Fort Clark Springs Association.
Our annual multi-day event helps us fulfill three of the six purposes of Fort Clark Springs Community Council (FCSCC):
To assist in the education of the youth and general public in the history of Southwest Texas.
To preserve, protect, and promote the Fort Clark Historic District for its citizens, the visiting public and future generations.
To raise money to help achieve these goals.
Students at Lytle High School created Is Living History a Dying Art? and were runners up at the Young Filmmakers State Finals on March 12, 2021. Video was shot at the 2020 Fort Clark Days event.
