The Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York and Fraunces Tavern Museum invite you to join us in celebrating the 241st anniversary of the adoption of the American flag! Our annual Flag Day Parade steps off from City Hall and concludes with a ceremony at Fraunces Tavern.

The Parade will begin at 12 noon, departing from City Hall Park, proceeding south on Broadway heading towards historic Fraunces Tavern and the Flag Day Ceremony Stand at the corner of Broad and Pearl Streets. At the Stand, there will be ceremonies, with songs performed by schoolchildren, proclamations, and recitations honoring “Old Glory.”

The Parade will also feature hundreds of New York City school children, color guards from the Armed Forces, contingents from the New York City Fire and Sanitation Departments, and many of the City’s oldest historical and patriotic societies.

Fraunces Tavern Museum will be reducing its admission to $1 from Flag Day through the following weekend (Thursday, June 14 – Sunday, June 17).
