Reenactor Showcase

John Jay Homestead is hosting a Reenactor Showcase designed to provide reenactors with a free opportunity to market their services to libraries, schools, historical sites, and community organizations. Participants in this event will be able to host a booth to work from and will also be provided an opportunity to make a presentation.

The Showcase will coincide with our weekly Farmers Market which regularly brings in over 500 shoppers each week. The market has a variety of vendors, including prepared foods, which makes it a great place to spend the day. We plan to heavily market the showcase to schools, museums, libraries, historical societies, and community organizations in seven counties: Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, and Ulster in New York, and Fairfield County in Connecticut. We will also be marketing the event to the general public.

We are inviting reenactors and performers who interpret from pre-contact to the 1920s. Please note that this is a curated event; we have the utmost respect for reenactors and historic performers and want to make sure that all of the participants are representing the community appropriately. If you are interested in joining us, please fill out the google form that is linked below and feel free to share the link with anyone you feel should be included.

The event will be rain or shine.

We hope to see you on May 13th!
