The Colonial Heritage Festival offers something for every member of the family. Visit the apothecary shop, blacksmith, cooper, broom maker, gunsmith, spoon maker, potter, various fiber artisans, chandler, baker, Isaiah Thomas Print Shop, frontier life, & much, much more. New programs are sure to educate and entertain with multiple opportunities for audience participation.

Military enthusiasts can visit the gun displays, experience the cannon firing on the green and watch military demonstrations between the Continental & His Majesty’s Forces.
