Washington Crossing Historic Park

Step back in time to experience life during the revolutionary war. Reenactors dressed as colonial townspeople will gather at the marketplace in the Historic Village area of the park to sell their wares, while soldiers drill 18th-century military tactics. Participate in crafts and live cooking demonstrations while the park's fife and drum band perform.

In addition, families can experience a wide array of activities including crafts, cooking demonstrations, tours of historic buildings, and music. Those interested in shopping can browse the park’s modern gift shop for local crafts, art and other goods. It is important to note that attendees also receive free admission to the Thompson-Neely House and Bowman’s Hill Tower that day.
