Encampment, market set for Washington Crossing Park


Travel back in time and experience the life of the Founding Fathers during Washington Crossing Historic Park’s annual Autumn Encampment & Market from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19.

Colonial townspeople will gather at their marketplace in the historic village area of the park to sell their wares while soldiers drill 18th-century military tactics.

Families can enjoy a wide array of activities, including crafts, cooking demonstrations, tours of historic buildings, and one-on-one interaction with colonial reenactors. The park’s fife and drum corps will perform throughout the day.

Admission to Autumn Encampment & Market is $8 for adults, $4 for children age 5 to 11, and free for those under 5. Attendees also receive free admission to the park’s Thompson-Neely House, restored Grist Mill and Bowman’s Hill Tower that day. This event will be held rain or shine.

The park is at the intersection of routes 32 (River Road) and 532. Visit
