On Friday, July 19, The Fifes and Drums of York Town will be performing on the Tryon Palace grounds. At 11:30 a.m., The Fifes and Drums of York Town will begin their march down the Grand Allée to the Tryon Palace South Lawn for their performance.

The Fifes and Drums of York Town was formed for the American Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. Today they continue their mission to recruit youth between the age of 10 and 18 and train them in the rudiments and drill of 18th Century field music.

A typical performance season consists of approximately 80 shows, many of which are conducted for the National Park Service and York County, as well as various historic venues along our Eastern seaboard including Mount Vernon, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Valley Forge Pennsylvania, West Point, New York, and Boston, Massachusetts.

Our members dress in period uniforms. The goal of all members is to promote into the Senior Corps and wear the red regimental uniform reminiscent of the uniform worn by 18th century musicians who served in the Continental Army in Yorktown, Virginia…where Freedom was Won!
