Evacuation Day Virtual Event

Monday, November 23, 2020

7:00-8:00pm EST

Free Zoom Event

Evacuation Day marked the final British evacuation from New York City in 1783, after seven years of occupation. The evening culminated in a festive dinner, hosted by Governor George Clinton and with George Washington in attendance, at the tavern of Samuel Fraunces. Evacuation Day remained a city holiday into the 1930s and the occasion was often marked by parades and colorful ceremony.

Come join us as we continue this tradition virtually! Although we cannot be together in person at the Tavern, we plan to have a festive gathering and raise our glasses for the very same thirteen toasts given at the first Evacuation Day Dinner at Fraunces Tavern on November 25, 1783.

Registration ends at noon 12pm EST on Nov. 23
