Colonialfest is an annual event hosted by Old North the weekend of Boston 4th of July Harborfest celebrations.
Boston Harborfest encompasses many of the significant historical landmarks around Boston. Many activities will take place on Long Wharf and in Christopher Columbus Park. Partner programming will occur along the Freedom Trail (like at our campus!), at historical museums, Faneuil Hall, and Charlestown Navy Yard.
For Harborfest, Old North hosts Colonialfest, a campus-wide Independence Day celebration featuring lots of family-friendly colonial activities, like chocolate making, sewing, tricorne hat making, musket lessons, fife playing, quill writing, and more! Our 2017 Colonialfest programming is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, July 1 and Sunday, July 2.
