Chestertown Tea Party Festival – Reenactment

May 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In response to British Parliament’s closing of the port of Boston, the citizens of Chestertown, Maryland met in May of 1774 and set forth “Resolves” forbidding importing, selling, or consuming tea in Chestertown. Per local legend, residents gathered at the town center, marched down High Street to the brigantine Geddes anchored in the Chester River, and tossed her cargo of tea overboard. The annual reenactment of that event is the centerpiece of the Chestertown Tea Party Festival. The re-enactment is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. All Festival events take place along the Chester River and in Downtown
