The Mount Holly Library, The Book Shelf Bookstore and the Friends Meeting House will host presentations by authors and historians during the day. In addition to living history, period craft demonstrations, and lectures, the downtown will be the site of a cannonade and skirmish between Hessians and militia from 2:00 to 3:30 on Sunday.

Partners include Main Street Mount Holly, the Shops at Mill Race Village, the Downtown Business Association, the Township of Mount Holly, the Mount Holly Historical Society, The Mount Holly Library and Lyceum, and the Burlington Parks and Recreation Department.
