Above: The William Diamond Jr. Fife and Drum Corps of Lexington, MA performs as part of Liberty and Union Weekend.
Each fall, Taunton, Massachusetts' Liberty and Union Weekend commemorates the events of October 1774, when our community became the first in the American colonies to raise a flag in opposition to British rule. That flag - the "Liberty and Union" flag - flies proudly over our city to this day.
Liberty and Union Weekend 2015 is October 15-18, with free events throughout Downtown Taunton. See our Schedule page for details or Contact Us for more information about how you can get involved.
