7/11/2013 through 7/13/2013
Celebrate one of the region's --- and nation's --- most important and colorful moments in history with a weekend of excitement.
Begun in 1791, the Whiskey Rebellion was a protest by farmers who used their leftover grain and corn in the form of whiskey as a medium of exchange and were forced to pay a new tax. Protesters used violence and intimidation against federal officials until 1794 when President George Washington peacefully ended the crisis.
Bring the entire family to enjoy great food, terrific music, fun activities, historic re-enactments and impressive art in a truly historic setting. For more information, call the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency at (866) 927-4969.
