Reenactor and Historic Merchant Information

The Havre de Grace War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemoration Commission is proud to welcome you to Havre de Grace.  Our Reenactment Committee consists of museum professionals, reenactors, and town officials so we hope you will find the bicentennial commemoration an exciting event to participate in this year.

We have a full schedule for the reenactment weekend and more plans are unfolding.  Please check our website frequently for updates to the schedule and special museum program additions.  We will provide a modest stipend to cover dinner Friday and breakfast Saturday and Sunday, lunch and dinner on Saturday will be catered.  Stipends for cannons and powder are also available.  We are discounting tickets for the “Grace Under Fire Ball?on Saturday for pre-registered reenactors, and will have ample camping available.  Limited camping and historic merchant space is available in town at the Lock House and the Lighthouse Keeper’s house property.  These sites will be assigned by your preference on the registration and availability.  There is also unlimited camping at Steppingstone Farm Museum with separate areas for modern and RV/Trailer camping. Steppingstone can also accommodate camping before or after the event if you arrive outside of the event dates.  Shuttle busses will run to and from downtown and Steppingstone to accommodate all reenactor activities including early morning and evening activities.  We are anticipating 20-30,000 visitors in town so we hope to accommodate your participation with as little disturbance and need to deal with traffic as possible.
