Liberty & Union Festival 2017
October 21 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm
Each fall, Taunton, Massachusetts’ Liberty and Union Weekend commemorates the events of October 1774, when our community became the first in the American colonies to raise a flag in opposition to British rule. That flag – the “Liberty and Union” flag – flies proudly over our city to this day.
The Festival features the annual tribute to Robert Treate Paine, the raising of the Liberty & Union Flag, live music & dancers on the City stage, food trucks, vendors, Colonial reenactors, a variety of free activities for kids, a beer tent, and much more. This is an event for all ages to enjoy!
