Although many Fourth of July events have been cancelled this year, the Charlotte Museum of History has a full week of virtual celebrations planned. See below for information on the events.
Join us virtually to celebrate the ideals of the Declaration of Independence with a week-long celebration culminating in a re-broadcast of last year’s Naturalization Ceremony.
● Monday, June 29: Check out online resources from the museum that celebrate our nation’s ideals of independence and liberty and provide historical context for the Fourth of July holiday.
● Tuesday, June 30: Explore the museum’s vaults in a new online video that features some of the museum’s special independence themed collection items.
● Wednesday, July 1: Watch a ringing of the American Freedom Bell online. It’s the largest ground-level bell in the nation and was dedicated at the turn of the millennium.
● Thursday, July 2: Join an independence-themed Lunch & Learn on Zoom. Register online at charlottemuseum.org/events to receive the Zoom link.
● Friday, July 3: Get instructions for a firecracker-themed craft that the whole family can do together using common household items.
● Saturday, July 4: Celebrate the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship by watching a rebroadcast of last year’s U.S. Oath & Naturalization Ceremony at the museum.
All content will be available on the Museum’s Facebook page, website (https://charlottemuseum.org/independence-day-celebrations/), and YouTube channel. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
