The celebration kicks off at 10 a.m. Sunday, June 13 when Betsy Ross, herself, raises the flag in the courtyard to mark the beginning of National Flag Week.  Once Upon A Nation Storytellers will entertain from the courtyard stage, telling short, interactive and little-known stories featuring our nation’s flag.

Other highlights of the week will include the ongoing assembly of a larger-than-life American flag made entirely of M&M’s®. Enjoy free samples provided by Mars Wrigley and photo ops with the completed flag on Sunday, June 13.  The moving, annual naturalization ceremony will welcome 13 new citizens on Flag Day and during the week, visitors will meet figures from history, including famous suffragists and, of course, Betsy Ross, herself.

All week, the first 100 visitors to the House each day will receive free admission
Please note: free admission is only available on-site on a first-come, first-served basis. We suggest guests arrive early to receive free admission.

Free admission and Flag Fest programming are being made possible with the generous support of a patriotic friend of the Betsy Ross House.
