Independence Celebration at Historic Bethabara Park
10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Enjoy and afternoon of old-fashioned fun and Patriotic music.
The towns of Bethabara, Bethania, and Salem hosted the first documented independence celebrations in North Carolina on July 4, 1783, after the end of the War for Independence. Research indicates that these Moravian communities joined Boston, MA and Charleston, SC as possibly the first places in the new nation to hold a public day of thanksgiving signaling the end of the American Revolution.
Celebrate your independence!
