Texas Independence Day Celebration
Celebrate the 181st anniversary of the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence!
Join us as we celebrate where a nation was born 181 years ago with historical activities and events the whole family can enjoy!
There will be things to do all over the park: Star of the Republic Museum (collections and programs honoring history of early Texans); Independence Hall (where representatives wrote the Texas Declaration of Independence); and Barrington Living History Farm (where interpreters dress, work and farm as did the original residents of this homestead).
The birthday celebration features:
- Live music & performances
- Tours of Independence Hall
- Traditional crafts & demonstrations
- Living history presentations
- Historical encampments & commemorative programs
- Historic firearms & cannon demonstrations
Step back in time and experience where Texas became Texas at Washington-on-the-Brazos!
