​Join us in a toast to early American history at our authentic Federal era tavern!

The Rising Sun Tavern sat at the crossroads of boozy politics, scathing songs, and raucous festivities in the early republic. Sample authentic drinks and treats that tavern patrons enjoyed at the time – including whiskey punch and Virginia hard cider! Enjoy live period music performed by Colonial Faire. Don’t miss out on this unique event.

Admission is limited to guests ages 21+. Tickets are nonrefundable. Please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your tour time.
