Patriot's Day Revolutionary Muster & Parade 2015

April 18, 2015 - April 18, 2015 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Rain or Shine


Included with General Admission

Travel back in time and rediscover the history behind the Patriot’s Day holiday and the “shot heard round the world.” Revolutionary times will come to life through demonstrations of period crafts and activities, fife and drum music, and a parade and muster.  Nathan Hale Ancient Fifes and Drums, Knowlton’s Connecticut Rangers and Buckland’s Artillery play a lead role in the day’s activities.

Historic Deerfield guides and cooks will interpret open hearth cooking, chocolate’s role in the military, and powder horn carving in the 1786 Hall Tavern. Horse-drawn wagon rides will transport visitors through the village, and all historic houses will be available for touring. Visitors can make a flag to wave during the afternoon parade, and then take it home as a memento.  Self-guided “Liberty Walk” tours will be available, as well as family-friendly food.
