Boston Tea Party Reenactment

December 16

Be a part of one of early America’s formative moments during The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum’s annual tea throwing reenactment. The yearly event reenacts a turning point in the Colonialists agitation with their British rulers when on December 16, 1773 Bostonians met at the Old South Meeting House to decide what to do with three shiploads of imported (and heavily taxed) tea sitting in Boston Harbor. Gather at Old South Meeting House just as the Colonialists did that fateful night before heading to Griffins Wharf to watch tea thrown from the Brig Beaver. The tea used during this year’s 244th anniversary reenactment comes from London’s East India Company, which is where the original tea came from in 1773.
