FIRST FOOT GUARDS EVENTS, 2021
We are back! After all reenactment events in 2020 and most in 2021 were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event sites are beginning to reopen with a limited schedule for the latter part of the 2021 season. Sites will follow state and CDC COVID guidelines in effect at the time of the events. In 2022 we expect to have a full schedule of events similar to 2019.
We invite you to come to our events, see what we do, and consider joining the Guards. All events are open to the public and are free except Fort Ticonderoga where there is a nominal admission fee. All events are subject to change due to weather or other cicumstances, so before attending an event, always check the event host's web site for the latest information. Many of these events repeat every year and there are photos and videos of many of them on our Photos and Videos pages.
