Flag Fest 2022

Flag Festival returns for a 15th year with eight days of programming that includes favorites from year’s past, plus some brand-new events that are sure to be crowd pleasers! The longest Flag Festival ever spans more than a week, June 12-19 and promises entertainment for all ages and tastes to the chance to meet famous and not-so-famous figures from history, an after-hours event for the 21 and over crowd, plus free admission for the first 100 visitors every day of the celebration.

The Betsy Ross House hosted its first Flag Day event on June 14, 1891 and has long been the site of the city’s official commemoration. In 2008, the star spangled celebrations of the early 19th century were revived and, since then, the House has hosted full slate of events, spanning all of National Flag Week. Celebrations went virtual in 2020 and were scaled back in 2021, but are back in full force with the return of the signature Stars & Stripes Saturday on Saturday, June 18.
