Statement on the 2021 Boston Tea Party Reenactment

In an effort to preserve the health and safety of our staff, partners, and audiences, Revolutionary Spaces and the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum regretfully announce that the Boston Tea Party Reenactment will not be taking place this year. We made this difficult decision with a combination of logistical and safety considerations in mind.

This reenactment has long been a beloved and powerful way for the people of Boston to connect with this important moment in our nation’s history, and we will be finding other ways to acknowledge and commemorate this year’s anniversary. We will keep you apprised of our plans as they develop, and as we prepare for the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party in 2023.

Thank you for your support and understanding, and we look forward to welcoming you and the people of Boston back to the Old South Meeting House soon.
