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 2016 is October 14-15, with events offered throughout Downtown Taunton. Please visit the Schedule page for details, and join in celebrating the flag that sparked a revolution!
