Celebrating Independence Day with Naturalization Ceremonies

Release Date: June 29, 2015

On July 4, we celebrate Independence Day – the day the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

Each year, USCIS celebrates this holiday with a week of special naturalization ceremonies across the country. This year, we will welcome more than 4,000 new citizens in over 50 Independence Day-themed naturalization ceremonies between July 1 and 4. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.

We encourage you to share your ceremony experiences and photos via Twitter and other social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow @USCIS on Twitter and Facebook.com/USCIS.
