Texas Independence Day Celebration
Join us for a two-day celebration of Texas Independence.
Washington-on-the-Brazos celebrates the 179th anniversary of the birth of the Republic of Texas! This annual two-day celebration commemorates the 17-day convention that led to the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence and her eternal political separation from Mexico in 1836.
The event features live music, food, traditional crafts, living history presentations, firing demonstrations, historical encampments and commemorative programs—all with no park entrance or parking fees. Guests will step back into history to experience life in Texas in 1836 by visiting with reenactors and witnessing musket and cannon firing demonstrations. Walk in the footsteps of Texas heroes like Sam Houston and David Crockett at the very place where Texas became Texas!
