Revolutionary Spaces will celebrate the 249th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party with the reenactment of the Meeting of the Body of the People on December 16, 2022. Returning after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Revolutionary Spaces will host hundreds of people at Old South Meeting House—the largest indoor gathering space in colonial Boston and the site of key meetings that led to American independence.
Doors will open at 5:00 PM with a pop-up tea shop at Old South’s museum store. Hosted by Revolutionary Spaces’ member community and The Tea Can Company, guests will enjoy a complimentary tea tasting with exclusive product discounts. They will also meet the Ladies of Boston and other colonial characters to learn about what life was like leading up to the Revolution.
The reenactment of the Meeting of the Body of the People—when more than 5,000 people gathered at Old South Meeting House in 1773 to denounce the unfair practices of the distant parliament—will begin at 6:30 PM. The event will feature iconic Bostonians whose vigorous debate led to the destruction of tea on December 16, as well as other personalities whose contributions shaped colonial Boston.
Tickets are available for $30 for adults and $25 for members, children (12 and under), and seniors (65 and older).

Tickets to this event also include access to both of Revolutionary Spaces’ sites—the Old State House and Old South Meeting House—from Friday, December 16 through Sunday, December 18, 2022 (a $15 value).
