Come celebrate Independence Day weekend at the Alamo! Our Living Historians are hosting events for families from across South Texas and beyond.

The activities kick off Saturday, July 1, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Visitors will be transported back in time to learn about life in the 1700s with an up-close, hands-on look at crafts like spinning and weaving, blacksmithing, and cooking. There will be a place for visitors to sign the Declaration of Independence. Families will also witness historically-accurate firearms demonstrations.

On Sunday, July 2, the hands-on activities will continue from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the Alamo grounds as well as additional firing demonstrations.

Continuing the excitement, on Tuesday, July 4, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., immerse yourself in our 1830s Living History demonstrations. Independence Day will feature readings of the Declaration of Independence, hands-on crafts, firing demonstrations, and a musical performance by FM Studios Music School.

Additionally, visitors can reserve tickets in advance for guided tours, audio tours, and entrance into the new Alamo Exhibit at the Ralston Family Collections Center on our website.

We hope you'll join us at the Alamo this Independence Day for a holiday weekend to remember!
