Tidioute's  Annual World War II Reenactment has been canceled indefinitely.  

The Battle of the Bridge at Remagen was canceled for the year 2020 due to Covid-19 concerns making 2019 our last year as it is now canceled indefinitely.  We thank everyone for their interest and participation in this event.  Together we had eleven successful years.  Below are some pictures and details of past events.  You may also like to visit our "Tidioute World War II Reenactment" Facebook page for more.
