Drumming Up Attention: Celebrate Revolutionary Fifers and Drummers

August 18, 2018 - 11:00 am
Museum of the American Revolution

The event is free and open to the public (museum admission not included). In the event of rain, the party will be moved into the Museum’s first-floor Patriot Gallery and will still be free. 

Sound the drummers call! Beat the quick march! We're celebrating the fifers and drummers of the Revolutionary War with a free Fife and Drum Party on our outdoor plaza. 

At 11 a.m., Noon and 1 p.m., the Fifes and Drums of the Old Barracks will perform patriotic tunes on the plaza. At 11:30 a.m., the Museum’s own costumed musicians will offer fife and drum demonstrations and a brief lesson.

The party also will include free toy fifes for the first 300 guests and other giveaways. Try on Revolutionary costumes and march to the beat of your own drum during parades around the plaza at 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
