With this year’s theme of “life on the river,” historic New Castle welcomes families and friends to the re-created delights of life in a coastal town. Adults and children will be entertained by deck tours of the A.J. Meerwald (12:00 PM - 4:00 PM), pirate re-enactments, storytelling, music, artisan demonstrations and sales, blacksmithing, glassblowing, face-painting, a colonial brewer and wharf-side beer garden, and more. For a gentler pace, stroll the brick sidewalks of America’s oldest continuous home and garden tour, with glimpses into the seldom-seen private worlds behind the old city’s historic architecture. This tour is included in your Day in Old New Castle ticket.
