Celebrating Independence Day 2021 with Naturalization Ceremonies

On July 4, we celebrate our nation’s 245th birthday and the day the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776. 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will celebrate Independence Day this year by welcoming more than 9,400 new citizens in 170 naturalization ceremonies between June 30 and July 7. A list of highlighted Independence Day-themed ceremonies is below.
