EVENTS

Texas Independence Day Celebration

An annual two-day living history celebration to commemorate when 59 delegates bravely met in 1836 to make a formal declaration of independence from Mexico. After all, there is no better place to celebrate Texas independence than on the very spot "Where Texas Became Texas." The free event features live music, food, traditional crafts, musket and cannon firings, Texas A&M University Singing Cadets, a kids history zone, "€œThe Birth of a Republic" historical play about the signers of the declaration, Brenham Children's Chorus, and other commemorative programs. A new museum exhibit, "So Others Could Follow: Four Centuries of Maps That Define Texas," will open that weekend and will illustrate the evolution of Texas over four centuries, both topographically and politically. Historical re-enactors set up a bonafide 1836 Texas Army camp where visitors can wander freely to learn how the soldiers and their families lived then.
