Fort Mifflin on the Delaware, 6400 Hog Island Road

A vintage tavern sign for the "Cannonball Tavern", showing a flagon of ale, frothing over, imposed over a cannonball, with the name of the tavern circling the ball and flagon. The top and bottom of the sign are vertically striped red and white.

Join our friends at Fort Mifflin to experience the ambiance of a colonial-era tavern in Philadelphia when Fort Mifflin transforms the Soldier’s Barracks into the Cannonball Tavern, complete with authentic beverages and hearty tavern fare. Enjoy 18th century tavern games, the warm glow of a cozy fire, lively toasting, live music with our friends from Forbes Road Frolic and the company of civilians and soldiers of the era. The outdoor fire pit and cannon demonstrations complete the scene. Period attire welcome but not required.

The tavern bar features beverages crafted in the authentic 18th century manner from period recipes as well as limited contemporary choices. Tavern fare includes your choice of hearty soup with crusty bread, Ploughman’s Plate, Soft Pretzels with 21st Century Beer Cheese and S’mores Kits. Your paid admission includes two food and beverage tokens, then pay as you go the rest of the night. Profits from this event support educational programming. ** Adults only. Be prepared to show ID at the event entrance. No outside food or drink permitted.

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY! Extend your experience and spend the night in the Soldier’s Barracks or Casemates, or camp out on the Parade Ground. This opportunity valid only with purchase of a Tavern ticket.
