For Immediate Release
Patriots Week 2022 features Fun of Historic Proportions
Patriots Week, which celebrates Trenton’s pivotal role in the Revolutionary War, returns to New Jersey’s Capital City from December 26–31, 2022. Events include walking tours, musket demos, a “living museum,” and a lineup of free historic happenings in and around downtown Trenton.
Patriots Week is a wonderful, unifying celebration that brings to life the historic figures, places and events that helped shape the birth of our nation.
The Old Barracks Museum will be bustling with activity all week with tours, musket demonstrations and discussions. There you will find men and women dressed in period garb as they tell the stories of the brave soldiers who overcame adversity to win the Battles of Trenton. You’ll even get to see what they carried in their packs!
We are excited to announce many popular events, such as the Hogmanay celebration of the Scottish New Year and the Firewalk on the Assunpink Creek, when 13 torches will be set ablaze along the south bank of the creek during a dramatic reading of Thomas Paine’s “The American Crisis.”
