Friday September 14, 2018
7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Leave your 21st century troubles behind and spend an evening in a colonial tavern at the Old Barracks Museum's Tavern Night Fundraiser on the evening of September 14, 2018. Live music, food, and drink, set the scene of an evening in 18th century Trenton, when King George II still ruled and the tavern was the center of town.

The Old Barracks Museum will transform into a colonial tavern filled with music, drinks, games, and candlelight. Dance Master Sue Dupre will provide dance instruction for those who wish to dance but do not yet know the steps. John Burkhalter, of The Practitioners of Musick, accompanied by Russell Hoffman , will perform music of the 18th century on period instruments. Period dress is neither required nor discouraged and you will find many people from the past and present mingling together.

Bid on a wide range of items in the Silent Auction, including an original painting by James Doherty, an overnight stay and dinner at Bally's Atlantic City, golf & cart rental at Trenton Country Club, and many more prizes donated by local businesses.

Tickets are available for purchase online at www.barracks.org. Ticket prices are as follows: $60, or $50 for Old Barracks Museum members. No one under 21 permitted.  All proceeds from this fundraiser support educational programming for more than 10,000 New Jersey students through our innovative 'Meet the Past' field trips.
