A Rebellious Brew
New York’s Tea Party of 1774
Sponsored annually by Fraunces Tavern® Museum. Contrary to popular belief, Boston was not the only colonial city to have its own ‘tea party’ in revolutionary times. Many seaport cities, including New York, had their own versions, albeit on smaller scales. (Boston’s was on December 16, 1773, and New York’s was on April 22, 1774.) Join licensed New York City Tour Guide Fred Cookinham, to envision New York’s 1774 waterfront and discover why the city was so late in the game to revel in patriotic spirit.
Contact Fraunces Tavern® Museum for meeting place and price. Reservations necessary.

DATE: Dates will be announced on Fraunces Tavern® website sometime between now and April. We will offer the tour twice this year, Saturday and Sunday, with a 30-person cap each. Go to Fraunces Tavern® Museum website for reservations.
