Place a Wager and Support Museum Theatre at the National Colonial Farm!

This year’s theme for the big summer colonial event, That’s Entertainment: The Politics of Mirth, is a colonial-era barbeque designed to introduce the 21st century visitor into the world of 18th century entertainments and the deep social meanings they held for all classes of early Marylanders. These barbecues were held to endorse political office, show off social class and fulfill the desire to gamble! The event will include activities in which guests can place bets (with pretend tobacco notes) on card games, horse races, boxing,  as well as experience theatrical performances, merriment and more!

Place your wagers early and support the National Colonial Farm’s Museum Theatre Internship Program!

Before the event on July 28th and 29th we are giving everyone the opportunity to get in on the action early and “buy in” (donate) to the Museum Theatre Program!
