Colonial Field Day

Free
Westport Museum for History and Culture, 25 Avery Place
Westport, 06880 United States


Ever wondered how to play hoop and stick? Or pickle a vegetable? What about spinning yarn?

Bring the whole family for free to see for yourself! Take part in activities that were commonplace in the 18th century. Speak with costumed staff and volunteers about the lives of those in the colonial era. Try your hand at beating a rug, playing nine-mans-Morris or look at a reproduction Brown Bess rifle like what was used in the Revolutionary War. Enjoy colonial music and some treats while you explore the chores as well as the fun and games of the past.

While you’re on the property why not attend our pickling or candle dipping* workshops?

Tickets for our workshops $15 per person for non-members, $10 for Family members and above. Workshops limited to 12 attendees. Tickets are nonrefundable. In the event you must cancel, we will consider your purchase a donation and will happily issue you a donation receipt.

Timed activities during the event:
2:30 pm Pickling Workshop (ticket required)
3:30 pm Candle Dipping Workshop (ticket required)
4:30 pm Group Colonial Dance

*Disclaimer candle dipping requires a hot plate
Sponsored by: The Russell Agency
