Salute the first commander in chief during our annual Independence Day event! Watch dazzling made-for-daytime fireworks shoot off over the Potomac River and listen to the roar of cannon fire during special military re-enactments. Enjoy free birthday cake (while supplies last), a visit from General and Mrs. Washington, and a performance by the National Concert Band during its "Red, White and Blue" concert. Spend a truly inspiring day at a truly inspiring place.
An American Celebration takes place rain or shine.
