Texas Independence Day Celebration

This annual two-day living history celebration on the 293-acre Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site commemorates when 59 delegates bravely met in 1836 to make a formal declaration of independence from Mexico and form a nation. The admission-free event features two stages of non-stop live music and entertainment, Texian Village of arts and crafts, a variety of food trucks, and other family-friendly programs. Historical re-enactors set up a bonafide 1836 Texas Army camp on the park grounds, where visitors can wander freely to learn how the soldiers and their families lived then, and witness musket and cannon firings. Admission fees are waived for the site’s attractions (Independence Hall, Star of the Republic Museum, and Barrington Living History Farm) for the weekend celebration. There is no better place to celebrate Texas independence than on the very spot “where Texas became Texas.”
