First Oval Office Project at the 2023 Revolutionary Germantown Festival

October 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join the Museum of the American Revolution at Cliveden on Saturday, October 7, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., for the Revolutionary Germantown Festival where they will set up their First Oval Office Project, a recreated Revolutionary War encampment, including handsewn, full-scale replicas of General George Washington’s sleeping marquee, dining tent, baggage tent, and common tents that served as his mobile headquarters while on campaign. Navigate the encampment, explore the tents, and meet costumed living history interpreters portraying the people who would have been there. Washington’s original sleeping and office tent from the Revolutionary War is on permanent display at the Museum of the American Revolution in historic Philadelphia.

The Revolutionary Germantown Festival returns as Cliveden and the sites of Historic Germantown collaborate to highlight the diverse stories of the people who lived through the American Revolution and the Battle of Germantown, on Oct. 4, 1777. Along with our First Oval Office Project, the festival will also include the story of Washington’s October 4 surprise attack on the British with author Tom McGuire; first-person interpreters, such as Noah Lewis, Elise D’Avella, and Nastassia Parker, along with re-enactors portraying British and Continental soldiers, discussing the experiences of people who lived through and fought during the revolution; and tours and family-friendly activities at Cliveden and participating sites in Historic Germantown. The festival is free and open to all.
