See the largest military re-enactment in New England with hundreds of costumed Revolutionary War reenactors, both soldiers and civilians, encamped on the Village Common. Visitors can not only explore our exhibits, galleries, and demonstrations and talk with our costumed historians about everyday life in early New England, but also tour the camps, witness recreated skirmishes and battles, see special presentations, and enjoy fife and drum music.

Daytime events on both days include activities such as:

  • Mock battles and skirmishes
  • Tours of the British and American camps
  • Cannon demonstrations
  • Musket drilling with kids
  • Martial music
  • Drilling and inspection of the troops
  • See the daily life of a Revolutionary War soldier – including delivery of uniforms, pay calls, and prisoner exchanges
  • And more!

It’s Kids Free Summer at the Village!  Up to three kids 17 and younger are admitted FREE when accompanied by an adult paying full admission ($28) now through the end of Labor Day (September 5, 2022).

Due to the popularity of Redcoats and Rebels, we ask that visitors purchase tickets with arrival blocks in order to spread out the arrival of visitors coming through the Visitor Center. You do not need to arrive exactly at the time stated on your ticket, but please try to arrive within a half hour of the start time you selected. After arriving, you are welcome to stay until the Village is closed.
