Boston Tea Party 249th Anniversary Commemoration

December 16, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Revolutionary Spaces, in partnership with the Newport Historical Society’s History Space Program, at Old South Meeting House (310 Washington St, Boston, MA) for the return of the reenactment of the Meeting of the Body of the People and a special Member appreciation tea party!

Meet iconic Bostonians whose vigorous debate led to the destruction of tea in 1773, as well as other personalities whose contributions shaped colonial Boston. Experience this moment in time in the room where it happened!

The largest indoor gathering space in colonial Boston, the Old South Meeting House was the site of key meetings that led to American independence. On December 16, 1773, more than 5,000 people—over a quarter of Boston’s population—gathered to denounce the unfair practices of the distant parliament.

Doors open at 5:00 PM for a pop-up tea shop at Old South’s museum store. Come early and meet the Ladies of Boston and other colonial characters you might recognize to learn about what life was like leading up to the Revolution. Ticket holders can enjoy tastes of Revolutionary Spaces’ tea and snag their own box for a special price. Exclusive tea tasting hosted by Revolutionary Spaces’ member community and The Tea Can Company!

Tickets to the Meeting of the Body of the People include access to both of Revolutionary Spaces’ sites, the Old State House and Old South Meeting House, on Friday, December 16th from 10am-2pm, and Saturday-Sunday, December 17th and 18th, from 10am-5pm (a $15 value).
