Battle of Hubbardton Revolutionary War Encampment

July 8th 10 AM- 5 PM

July 9th 7:45 AM - 3 PM

British and German troops ran into stubborn American resistance in Hubbardton on July 7, 1777. After hours of intense fighting, Crown forces would win the day, but this contest would ultimately contribute to turning the tide for the Patriot cause. To commemorate this iconic battle, scores of reenactors from around the northeast will set up camps to present this colorful history pageant, the largest Revolutionary War living history weekend in northern New England. 


The weekend will offer a chance for visitors to experience a bygone era with hands-on-history activities for all ages and interests. Visitors will be able to walk through the colonial encampment; interact with reenactors illustrating 1777; and observe tactical and artillery demonstrations and camp life. Special activities are offered for children, sutlers—or civilian merchants—provide a colonial shopping experience, and presentations by historians and reenactors will be given throughout the weekend.  


Special to this year’s events, the Division for Historic Preservation and the Vermont State Society Daughters of the American Revolution is hosting a dedication for Vermont’s Revolutionary War commemorative marker at (enter time here) . The marker honors those who fought and died at Hubbardton Battlefield and recognizes the preservation of the battlefield as part of the 250th anniversary of the founding of American Independence.
