Celebrate George Washington’s Birthday at Washington’s Headquarters.

Three days of fun and festivities in honor of him.

Saturday, February 16th
Sunday, February 17th
Monday, February 18th
12 – 4 p.m.

Sing “Happy Birthday” and explore all that each day offers – music, military demonstrations, topical talks, and a take-home craft – something for everyone!

As a special treat, The Washington Project: History Comes Alive! will take place each afternoon. Students from the Newburgh Enlarged City School District will present their own individually created theatrical and musical performance pieces featuring interpretations of historic events that took place while Washington was at his Newburgh Headquarters.

The Washington Project is a collaborative effort of the Newburgh Enlarged City School District, Safe Harbors of the Hudson, and Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site. Funding for The Washington Project: History Comes Alive! is provided through the New York State Connect Kids to Parks initiative, a program of New York State Parks and the Environmental Protection Fund.

Admission for all three days is FREE, though donations are appreciated.

Support for the George Washington Birthday Celebration is provided by the Friends of the State Historic Sites of the Hudson Highlands, Palisades Interstate Park Commission and the Palisades Parks Conservancy.
