A Reenactment of the Meeting of the Body of the People

At Old South Meeting House

Join Revolutionary Spaces in the room where it all happened—Old South Meeting House! This building hosted a number of meetings about the East India Company Tea sitting in Boston Harbor waiting to be unloaded and taxed. On that fateful night, 5,000 men gathered for a final meeting about the controversial tea tax, resulting in Samuel Adams giving the signal that would start the Boston Tea Party. Colonists then marched from the meeting house to Griffin’s Wharf and dumped 340 chests of tea into the Boston Harbor!

Seating for the Meeting of the Body of the People reenactment is unassigned so be sure to arrive early to pick your seats. Ticket holders may stay in their seats at Old South Meeting House for a livestream of the tea throwing at Griffin’s Wharf.

Please note: This event is SOLD OUT.
