First Crossing of 2022

Sunday, December 11
11:00am - 3:00pm


Witness American history come to life!

Each December, thousands of people gather on the banks of the Delaware River to watch The Friends of Washington Crossing Park reenactment of George Washington’s daring 1776 Christmas night river crossing. During the event, several hundred reenactors in
Continental military dress listen to an
inspiring speech by General Washington and then row across the river in replica Durham boats.

The actual crossing begins at 1PM.  In

addition to the crossing reenactment, special colonial-era activities and demonstrations in the Historic Village will offer a full day of family fun and learning.

Justin Cherry of Half Crown Bakehouse will be returning to this year’s event with freshly baked bread for purchase. Author and
professor at Penn State University Abington
Friederike Baer, Ph.D. will discuss and sign her new book, 
Hessians: German Soldiers in the American Revolutionary War.
