Join San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park's Living History players in reenactment of the 1901 waterfront strike.

Experience the sights and sounds of SF history through a reenactment. Hear impassioned speeches and voice your own opinion! Take part in a march as strikers implore ships crews to join their ranks. Watch as soldiers arrive to maintain order and see a ship's captain defy the strikers. Free admission to Hyde Street Pier (reenactment is on pier). Fee for boarding historic ships: Adults, $5, ages 15 and under, free. Free with national park passes. Program repeats at 3:00pm.
