Celebrating Independence Day with Naturalization Ceremonies

Release Date:

On July 4, we celebrate our nation’s 240th birthday and the day the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

USCIS marks Independence Day with naturalization ceremonies across the country. This year, we will welcome more than 7,000 new citizens during nearly 100 naturalization ceremonies between June 30 and July 4. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.

We encourage you to share your experiences and photos from naturalization ceremonies through Twitter and other social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow @USCIS on Twitter and facebook.com/uscis.
