Come Celebrate George Washington’s 287th Birthday
February 17, 2019

Come celebrate George Washington’s 287th birthday on Sunday, February 17, 2019 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at Washington Crossing Historic Park in Pennsylvania. Admission is free this year thanks to financial support from The Philadelphia Contributionship.

During the day, buildings in the historic village will be open and various children’s activities will be offered. At 2:00 pm, visitors will gather in the park’s visitor center to sing happy birthday to George and watch him use his sword to cut his cake, which is donated by The Caketeria in Newtown.

Children are encouraged to send George homemade birthday cards prior to the event. Cards can be mailed to P.O. Box 1776, Washington Crossing, PA 18977. All children will receive a written reply from George.

Washington Crossing Park is located at the intersection of Routes 32 and 532 in Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania. This event is sponsored by the Friends of Washington Crossing Park. Individuals with disabilities who need special assistance or accommodations to participate in this event should call 215-493-4076.
