July 4th at the National Archives


<< Back/Choose a Different Independence Day Celebration


The home of the original Declaration of Independence is going all out for the 4th of July, and everyone’s invited!

Join in the National Archives’ annual tradition as they celebrate our nation’s independence with a full day of family-friendly activities! On July 4, 2019, visitors to our nation’s capital can hear the Declaration of Independence read aloud, including greetings from Allison Seymour from Fox 5 News, and also enjoy a more dramatic reenactment, including historical characters Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and more!

Enjoy the presentation of colors by the Continental Color Guard, live musical performances by the 3rd U.S. Infantry “The Old Guard” Fife and Drum Corps, and of course, the National Independence Day Parade.

Plan to be at the steps of the National Archives Museum to kick-off the day’s events! The first 1,000 guests will receive a free t-shirt and flag to celebrate the day. Learn more about the celebration, including transportation and schedule information, online here.
