Each year, Olde Towne sponsors Colonial Times: A Day To Remember, a two-day event that draws people from all over the Southeast and beyond. The reputation of Olde Towne reenactments and living exhibits has spread beyond the limits of Aiken County. Members have participated in such varied events as the grand opening of the Augusta-Richmond County Museum, the reenactment of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in North Carolina, Walnut Grove Plantation in Roebuck, South Carolina, the 200th Anniversery of the Ezekiel Harris Historic House, Colonial Williamsburg, and the Beech Island Heritage Day.
