The SPIRIT of the JERSEYS Marks Its 10th Anniversary!
Experience five centuries of New Jersey’s history all in one place at the SPIRIT of the JERSEYS State History Fair - a historical festival for all ages on Saturday, May 10th at Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville, NJ.
This free, award-winning event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine, annually draws more than 5,000 visitors. In 2014, we celebrate the Fair’s 10th anniversary and New Jersey’s 350th! The Fair is a fun-filled adventure into New Jersey’s past with living history demonstrations, military reenactors, tours, exhibits, period music and dance, and historical organizations and museums from around the state.
There are plenty of hands-on activities for kids and adults, from learning the art of paper marbling to participating in historical games; to plowing a furrow or participating in a military drill. This year, there will be a free concert by the New Jersey Army National Guard’s 63rd Army Band immediately following the fair.
Washington Crossing State Park is located on the Delaware River, just eight miles north of Trenton. A National Historic Landmark, it was here that the Continental Army under the command of General George Washington landed after their historic crossing of the Delaware River on Christmas night 1776. The park contains over 2000 acres in Mercer and Hunterdon Counties and is easily accessible from Routes 29 and 546.

The Fair is sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Historic Sites, Division of Parks and Forestry, and its partners.
