Monmouth College’s Classics Day festival is open to all ages and is free of charge. Attendees can take part in gladiatorial combat, sample food, and enjoy exhibits and booths that celebrate the classical world.

“Classics Day includes more than 25 different events—including ancient Greek Olympics and Greek and Roman military demonstrations—that highlight and illuminate institutions and practices from the worlds of ancient Greece and Rome,” said assistant professor of classics Robert Simmons. “Almost all events are interactive, with attendees able to try on ancient-style clothing and military equipment, play ancient games, and much more.”
