The 67th Annual Christmas Day Crossing


Wednesday December 25, 2019
1:00 PM

During the event, several hundred reenactors in Continental military dress listen to an inspiring speech by General Washington and then row across the river in replica Durham boats. 

The 67th annual Christmas Day crossing will take place from noon to 3 p.m. on December 25 (actual crossing at approximately 1 p.m.). The Christmas Day crossing is free, and it is recommended that visitors arrive before 1 p.m. to ensure a good place along the viewing line.

River crossings are contingent upon safe conditions for participants. However, even if conditions do not allow for crossing, ceremonies, speeches and commemorative activities still occur.

Washington Crossing Historic Park is located at the intersection of Rts. 532 and 32 (River Road) in Bucks County, PA. To stay up-to-date on what is happening in the park, visit
