The 1812 Fair and Reenactment

10:00 am - 5 pm

($3 / person     $10 / car)

Step back in time with JPPM as we relive life in the early 1800s.  In 1814, war reached the shores of Southern Maryland. At the mouth of St. Leonard Creek, on property that is now part of JPPM, Maryland’s largest naval engagement occurred. This living history event puts you in the middle of life in Southern Maryland during this time. The event features tactical demonstrations and reenactments, camp life, live entertainment, crafts, music, dancing, food, drinks, hands-on activities, and more.

(Note: fee charged for beverages and food. Cash only).
