Happy Birthday, Texas!


The arrival of March heralds not only a season of growth and beginnings, but also our great state’s birthday.

March 2 marks 178 years since delegates to the Convention of 1836 declared Texas independent from Mexico. Events statewide will fete the anniversary, including the Texas Independence Day Celebration at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site—the location of the momentous 1836 declaration. Held March 1-2, the free celebration includes live music, traditional crafts, living historians, historical encampments, and more.
