George Washington’s Annual Delaware River Crossing

Sunday December 12, 2021
1:00 PM

Each December, thousands gather on the banks of the Delaware River to watch the 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 public has two opportunities to view the reenactment at Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA). The first is on Sunday, Dec. 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (actual crossing at approximately 1 p.m.). On this day, in addition to the crossing, special colonial-era activities and demonstrations throughout the historic village will provide families with a full day of fun and learning.

Cost to attend the Dec. 12 crossing is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages five to 11, and free for those under five. Family rate is $20 for two adults and two children. Tickets are available at WasingtonCrossingPark.org/cross-with-us. Proceeds from this reenactment support future programs in the park.
