Celebrate national independence at the very site where Texas gained its independence in 1836: Washington on the Brazos State Historic Site, between Brenham and Navasota.
Presented by H-E-B and coordinated by the Washington on the Brazos State Park Association, the annual 4th of July celebration at this 293-acre state park includes a day filled with family activities from 10am to 10pm on Saturday, July 4. The highlight of the celebration is the free music concert by Cody Bryan Band from 7pm to 9pm in the park’s amphitheater, followed by a fireworks extravaganza with patriotic music at approximately 9:30pm. Buses will run constantly from 1pm to 10pm to shuttle guests to the different areas of the park, at no charge.
Food and craft vendors will offer a variety of items for sale throughout the event. Located near the Visitor’s Center, H-E-B will give away free sodas at 5:30pm. As always, admission to the park and parking is free. Fees apply for access to Barrington Farm and the Star of the Republic Museum and tours of Independence Hall.
