Print this Page

Friday September 15, 2017
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 15. 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, and candlelight. Dance Master Sue Dupre will provide dance instruction for those who wish to dance but do not yet know the steps while John Burkhalter of The Practitioners of Musick performs on period instruments music heard in 18th century America accompanied by Russell Hoffman. Period dress is neither required nor discouraged, and you will find many people from the past and present mingling together. Hors d'oeuvres and an open bar of wine and River Horse Brewing Co. beer will be provided throughout the evening. Bid on a wide range of items in the Silent Auction

Tavern Night will be on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 7-10 PM. Tickets are available for purchase online at or visiting the Old Barracks Museum Monday through Saturday, 10 AM to 5 PM. Ticket prices are as follows: $60, or $50 for Old Barracks Museum members. No one under 21 permitted. More information can be found at www.barracks. org or 609-396-1776.
