Burning of Kingston, NY

October 14 - October 15

Free

The Burning of Kingston is a weekend-long celebration of American history, bravery, sacrifice and resilience. On a Fall October day in 1777, British troops set fire to the newly established first capital of the State of New York – Kingston. Burning down almost the entire town, over 300 buildings, the event was a dramatic moment in the American Revolution that only hardened the determination of colonists to gain independence. A biennial event, The Burning of Kingston is a mix of re-enactment, commemoration, and celebration.
