Patriots’ Day Minuteman Encampment
April 17 at 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM
“I haven’t a man who is afraid to go!” Visit the brave Acton Minutemen company in an encampment outside the Concord Museum on Patriots’ Day and see them drilling with muskets to prepare for battle, cooking over a firepit, and demonstrating colonial spinning and sewing.
This program is free and open to the public thanks to the generosity of the Massachusetts Society of Cincinnati and the Highland Street Foundation.
This event is happening rain or shine! If it’s raining, a lot of the encampment activities will be moved inside the Museum. Also, roads into Concord center are closed from 8 a.m. to noon, so go around Concord center (i.e., Rt. 2 or 2A) if you’re arriving before noon. Parking is limited on-site but there is parking along Lexington Rd, Cambridge Turnpike, at Concord-Carlisle High School (a bit of a walk), or other side streets.
Food trucks will be on-site! Say Cheese Food Truck and Twizted Pickle Food Truck will be here all day. Please note that food and drinks may not be brought into the Museum but there is plenty of room in the courtyard to eat outside.
