Crossing Reenactment

Public River Crossings Will Not be Held Due to COVID-19

Special pre-recorded crossing video to debut on Christmas Day

Out of concern for public safety and due to Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ crowd-size restrictions related to COVID-19, the two public Delaware River crossing reenactments will not be held in December at Washington Crossing Historic Park.

Because the reenactments require months of planning and coordination among hundreds of reenactors, park staff members, and volunteers, a decision had to be made well in advance. We are as disappointed as you are that this much-loved annual event cannot be held in the usual manner this year.

However, to keep the tradition alive, we will debut a special pre-recorded crossing video on Christmas Day. You can tune in this video on the park’s Facebook page or YouTube. Please stay tuned for more details.

Thank you for continuing to support the staff, volunteers, and reenactors at Washington Crossing Historic Park.
