Farmers' Museum Independence Day Celebration

The Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown marks Independence Day on Wednesday, July 4 from 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. with historic sounds, food, and great fun.

Starting at noon, watch as the Declaration of Independence read aloud on the Village Green. There will be additional readings from Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, and Susan B. Anthony. Hear the muskets blast with our traditional militia muster. Sit for a tintype portrait–something you can't do with your smartphone (through the day weather permitting, see website for details). Take our Hoppy Trails Tour at 2:00 p.m. and discover hops and craft brewing past and present.

During the event, museum artisans will demonstrate traditional blacksmithing, letterpress printing, and other trades throughout the day. At the Lippitt Farmstead, learn about life on the farm and delight in the baby animals at the Children's Barnyard. Play traditional summer games on the Village Green. Ride the Empire State Carousel and marvel at the Cardiff Giant. Enjoy traditional 19th century music performed throughout the day at Bump Tavern.

The museum is open every day this summer from 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Admission: Adults and juniors (ages 13-64): $12.00; seniors (65+): $10.50; youth (7-12): $6.00; children (6 and under): free.
