The 240th Anniversary Boston Tea Party Annual Reenactment
It's December 16 and trouble is brewing in Boston! Travel back in time and relive one of the most iconic public protests in American history-- the Boston Tea Party! Gather at Old South Meeting House, the actual historic landmark where the colonists met in 1773, with Boston's infamous rabblerousers like Samuel Adams, Paul Revere-- and even some crown-loving Loyalists-- to debate the tea tax and demand liberty from the British crown! Join the procession to Griffin's Wharf accompanied by fife and drum and scores of colonists! Then, line the shores of Boston Harbor to witness the daring destruction of the tea firsthand as the Sons of Liberty storm the Brig Beaver, tossing the troublesome tea into the sea!  

This event is presented by Old South Meeting House and the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum.

On-line tickets are no longer available. Limited tickets are available while supplies last for purchase IN PERSON ONLY at the Old South Meeting House Museum Shop.
