Lord Stirling 1770s Festival

October 15, 2019

On the first Sunday of October every year, Lord Stirling Park celebrates the Lord Stirling 1770s Festival. Colonial craftspeople dress in 1770s attire and provide a glimpse into 18th Century life and New Jersey’s important role in the American Revolution.

The Lord Stirling Estate is over 250 years old and an important asset to Bernards Township and its rich history. I was happy to spend part of my day with such lovely people at this great event.
