Redcoats and Rebels


Redcoats & Rebels returns on August 5th and 6th! See the largest military re-enactment in New England with hundreds of costumed Revolutionary War reenactors, both soldiers and civilians, encamped on the Village Common. Visitors can not only explore our exhibits, galleries, and demonstrations and talk with our costumed historians about everyday life in early New England, but also tour the camps, witness recreated skirmishes and battles, see special presentations, chat with guest craftspeople, and enjoy fife and drum music. Redcoats & Rebels 2023 is hosted by His Majesty’s 10th Regiment of Foot and the Lexington Minute Men.

If you are part of a Revolutionary War reenacting group and are interested in being a part of the event, please email events@osv.org.
