October 16-19, 2014
Each fall, the City of Taunton, Massachusetts' Liberty and Union Weekend commemorates the events of October 21, 1774. On that date, Taunton became the first community in the American colonies to raise a flag in stated opposition to British rule. That flag - the "Liberty and Union" flag - flies proudly over our great City to this day.
Liberty and Union Weekend 2014 takes place October 16-19 and features a Downtown Taunton pub crawl, an arts & history festival, and Taunton's 375th Celebration Parade.
