The 9th Annual Liberty Day Celebration




You, our friends and fellow Americans, are invited to celebrate our nation’s glorious heritage as we inflame in our hearts a richer love for this most precious gift - Liberty!

Come join us as over two hundred thirty years after Patrick Henry kindled the flame of liberty in the hearts of his hearers, with his now immortal words of liberty or death, we gather to commemorate the event.

You will laugh, learn, and perhaps even cry during this evening of family fun as with story, song, and skit we recall the principles, the men and events, the battles and the legends of ages past that have brought to us the liberty that shone America’s name across the world.

This year we are holding our celebration in conjunction with the conference: Jamestown: A Quadricentennial of Providence

The annual highlight of the evening is the exciting, fully costumed reenactment of the debate that took place during the 2nd Virginia Convention that culminates in the delivery of Patrick Henry’s famous speech.

Step back in time to March 1775, as you sit amongst George Washington, Richard Henry Lee, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and many others as they heatedly debate the controversial issue of their day—whether or not to go to war against their mother, England. Excitement fills the air as you grapple with the gripping arguments on each side. But, you’re not just a bystander! You, too, will cast your vote as one of the delegates!

Encasing the debate will be songs and stories of heroes and history.

After the presentations of the evening, enjoy refreshments, join in dancing the Virginia Reel, military drills, and several other fun activities that the whole family can join in on!
