Join the Boston
Tea Party Ships & Museum for Revelry on
Griffin's Wharf! on July 2, 3 and 6 from 7
p.m. - 9 p.m. (special evening hours) celebrating the colonial
and maritime heritage of the cradle of the American Revolution! The Boston
Tea Party Ships & Museum is located on the body of water where the Boston
Tea party took place on December 16, 1773, considered 'the
single most important event leading up to the American Revolution.'
Designed for children and adults, the evening at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum will bring to life a bustling colonial wharf with activities such as nautical demonstrations on board the Beaver and the Eleanor including knot tying, throwing and hauling of tea crates and whaling discussion. Period music will be played and will also including traditional sea shanties sing-a-longs and live fiddle player(s) playing onsite throughout. The evening will also include interactive living history interpretations with John Hancock, Paul Revere, Redcoats, the ship's captains and crews, colonial games and much more!
Most of the event will take place outside on the decks of the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and on the ships. Food and drink will be served in Abigail's Tea Room where there will also be actors playing colonial games and singing songs. The event will run rain or shine. However, if it is down pouring, the event will most likely be moved into Abigail's Tea Room and it will focus more on the Tavern elements.
