Old Sturbridge Village, Redcoats and Rebels

August 3 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Redcoats & Rebels returns on August 3rd and 4th! See the largest military re-enactment in New England with hundreds of costumed Revolutionary War reenactors, both soldiers and civilians, encamped on the Village Common. Visitors can explore our exhibits and galleries, watch demonstrations, and talk with our costumed historians about everyday life in early New England. In addition, visitors can tour the camps, witness recreated skirmishes and battles, see special presentations, chat with guest craftspeople, and enjoy fife and drum music.

Due to the popularity of this program, pre-registration is highly recommended. 

If you are part of a Revolutionary War reenacting group and are interested in being a part of the event, please email [email protected].


Due to the popularity of this event, we ask that members reserve tickets and non-members purchase tickets in advance. You are welcome to arrive anytime after the Village opens (9.30 a.m.) and stay until the Village closes.
