Sunday, June 13, through Saturday, June 19, 2021
The celebration kicks off at 10 a.m. Sunday, June 13 when Betsy Ross, herself, raises the flag in the courtyard to mark the beginning of National Flag Week. Once Upon A Nation Storytellers will entertain from the courtyard stage, telling short, interactive and little-known stories featuring our nation’s flag.
Other highlights of the week will include the ongoing assembly of a larger-than-life American flag made entirely of M&M’s®. Enjoy free samples provided by Mars Wrigley and photo ops with the completed flag on Sunday, June 13. The moving, annual naturalization ceremony will welcome 13 new citizens on Flag Day and during the week, visitors will meet figures from history, including famous suffragists and, of course, Betsy Ross, herself.
