July 4 Celebration of Freedom Ceremony

Each July 4, the Celebration of Freedom Ceremony at Historic Philadelphia’s Independence Hall pays tribute to the document that started it all: the Declaration of Independence. Taking place in front of the place the document was signed, the event features inspiring speeches, music and readings derived from the Declaration, live music and special guests.
