Saratoga, America’s Turning Point @ Boston Tea Party 250

We committed to elevating Saratoga as America’s Turning Point on a regional, national, and global scale. On December 15-17, 2023, Boston will commemorate the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, a moment that forever changed the course of American history and Saratoga will be there!

As the first in the nation major event kicking off our 250th founding commemorations, Boston will  culminate years of planning in a grand-scale reenactment of the Boston Tea Party.  A full evening of reenactments will play out in 4-parts across the City of Boston at several historic locations.
