The 239th Anniversary Boston Tea Party Annual Reenactment

It's December 16 and trouble is brewing in Boston! Join reenactors from across New England in recreating one of Boston's most iconic public protests-- the Boston Tea Party! Join in a spirited colonial meeting at Old South Meeting House with the Sons of Liberty--Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and many more-- as well as crown-loving Loyalists to debate the 1773 tea tax. Join the procession to Griffin's Wharf and line the shores of the Boston Harbor as the Sons of Liberty storm aboard the Brig Beaver to destroy chest after chest of tea!

This event is presented by Old South Meeting House and the new Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and takes place in three parts. These limited VIP (Very Important Patriot)  tickets are available for access to the full program.
