Rebels & Rye | A Call to Auction!

Step back in time to 1794 Bedford, relive the Whiskey Rebellion, and attend an historical "Vendue" Auction! Actors in period costume will bring the evening to life while guests sample artisan whiskies, bid on whiskey-related items, listen to live music, and watch Rebellion Mayhem unfold...Including the Tar & Feathering of a hated tax collector, played by our very special guest star.

Get more information and join the cause!
