Come Celebrate Texas Independence Day on March 2nd and 3rd!! We have music, traditional dance groups, along with historic medicine show, magic show, and a Punch & Judy show. This is in addition to vendors and historical activities that will be demonstrated both days.

Texas Independence Day Celebration” is an annual two-day living history celebration on Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3, 2019, on the 293-acre Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site to celebrate where 59 delegates bravely met in 1836 to make a formal declaration of independence from Mexico in 1836.

The admission-free event features live music, food, demonstrations and sales of traditional crafts (blacksmithing, candle makers, woodworking, quilting and more), living history presentations, musket and cannon firings, pageantry, Texas A&M University Singing Cadets, kids activities, museum exhibit, and other commemorative programs.

Historical re-enactors set up a bona fide 1836 Texas Army camp where visitors can wander freely among the tents to learn how the soldiers and their families lived in 1836 so guests can experience life in Texas in 1836.

Admission fees are waived for the site’s attractions (Independence Hall; Star of the Republic Museum and Barrington Living History Farm) for that weekend celebration.  Admission to the grounds, on-site shuttles and parking are also free.
