Celebrate Independence Day by bringing the whole family back in time—to July 4, 1776!

At Washington Crossing Historic Park, you can watch living historians demonstrate their crafts, tour the buildings in the Historic Village, and see a military encampment from noon to 4 PM on Sunday, July 4.

A highlight of the day will be readings of the Declaration of Independence at 12:30 PM, 1:30 PM, 2:30 PM and 3:30 PM.

Tickets are $8 for adults age 12 and over; $4 for children ages 5-11; and free for those under 5, active duty military, and members of the Friends of Washington Crossing Park. Families with up to two adults and two children living in the same household can purchase a single Family ticket for $20.
