Come celebrate the best July 4th in history with old-fashioned, patriotic family fun! The festivities will include opportunities to take part in the citizens' parade, march with the militia, and play 19th century baseball or Farm Yard Games. Visitors will be in awe as costumed historians fire a reproduction cannon. Guests can also learn 19th century dances and listen to special performances on the Common. Cheer and huzzah during a rousing patriotic reading of the Declaration of Independence and sign a giant reproduction of the document. Make your own tri-cornered hat to wear as you learn to drill with the Sturbridge Militia. A summer barbecue, prepared by the Village's own chef, will be available for purchase along with beer and wine; visitors may enjoy a picnic on the Common. Make this Fourth of July one that will go down in history!
