Join the Fort Pitt Museum for a historic Independence Day celebration.

The Fort Pitt Museum will host its annual Fourth at the Fort event in Point State Park on Tuesday, July 4. At 1 p.m., Fort Pitt Museum staff, scouts, and local veterans will help kick off the Fourth of July holiday by raising a 36-foot American flag.

The ceremony will commence in the Fort Pitt Block House yard, thanks to an ongoing partnership with the Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, owners of the Fort Pitt Block House – the oldest building in the region.

Following the patriotic flag raising ceremony, visitors can enjoy a family-friendly afternoon of living history demonstrations, cannon-firing, and 18th-century martial music.
