Colonial Times: A Day to Remember

The largest and oldest event held at the park is Colonial Times: A Day to Remember. This event is held the third weekend in October. Find out what daily life was like for the people who settled our area.

Christmas Events

Christmas in the Backcountry shows how colonists celebrated Christmas. This event is held the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Christmas for the Birds gives us a chance to help our wildlife. This event is held the first Saturday in December.

Last Saturday

At this time, we are not able to have Last Saturday events. We will let you know as soon as this changes.

Education Days

Education Days are special days set aside for students in the CSRA. Two are held each year, in April and in October.

Students will watch our colonial past (from 1735 to 1785) come to life through demonstrations and living exhibits. Try your hand at colonial dancing or see if you are fit to join the militia! Featured attractions will include apothecary skills, pottery, weaving and spinning, candle making, butter churning, musket firing demonstrations, gunsmithing, blacksmithing, needlework, woodworking, and smoking/curing meat. Be sure to stop by and visit with the Indian traders, the baker, potter, backwoodsmen, milliner, tavern keeper, and the sutlers on Sutlers Row. Stop in to the Village Mercantile and New Windsor Cabinet shop to see the lathe that was used in the movie The Patriot.

Reservations are required and there is a $5.00 per person charge. Students in grades 4 through 6 are encouraged as well as homeschooled students of all ages.
