Free Event April 6 and 7
Jockey Hollow will come to life on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7 as re-enactors from across the Northeast arrive for the park’s Grand Encampment.
The special event focuses on the life and times of soldiers and civilians during the Revolutionary War. It’s an event full of activities for the whole family.
Highlights for the weekend include demonstrations in the camp of cooking, sewing, and other camp chores, military maneuvers, and musket firing, and a special “children’s muster,” where children can learn to drill and march like Revolutionary soldiers.
The event opens at 10 am each morning and concludes at 4 pm each afternoon.
The schedule is as follows:
Saturday, April 6
Sunday, April 7
Note: At 2 pm, Sunday, April 7, the park will host folk singer/songwriter Gordon Thomas Ward. This special concert of New Jersey and history related songs will take place in Morristown NHP’s Washington’s Headquarters Museum, 30 Washington Place, Morristown, New Jersey. Admission is free.
