During the 18th-century, celebrations of major events such as birthdays, military victories, or new government positions such as colonial governor are observed with illuminations (the firing of guns and lighting off fireworks). Throughout this event, Colonial Williamsburg guests are invited to join in on the fun by participating in the many activities such as:

  • Roaming Revolutionary City and looking at the decorations
  • Enjoying multiple musical performances throughout the Historic Area
  • Gazing at the fireworks displays from the Capitol, the Magazine, and the Palace

You don’t want to miss this grand display of celebration!
