The War and Peace Revival (until 2012 the War and Peace Show) is the world's largest military vehicle and militaria collectors fair.[citation needed] It is held annually over several days (usually in late July) at Folkestone Racecourse (RAF Westenhanger) and formerly at the Hop Farm Country Park, Kent, England. It hosts more than 3500[citation needed] military vehicles including tanks, ferrets, DUKWs, jeeps and many other types of military transports.

A major part of the show[citation needed] revolves around the different re-enactors that portray various armies, units and events during armed conflicts during the 20th century. Especially prominent are Allied and Axis forces from the World War II, with mock battles staged in main arena using period vehicles, re-enactors and pyrotechnics.

Change of venue and name[edit]

In 2013 the show relocated to Folkestone Racecourse (which for a time in 1944 was known as RAF Westenhanger (after the nearby village)) and changed its name to the War and Peace Revival.[citation needed]
