This three-day encampment and extravaganza is celebrated with over 100 War of 1812 reenactors, parades, military bands, fireworks, a symbolic ship-to-shore bombardment and much more! The Star-Spangled Banner Weekend honors Defenders' Day, Baltimore's oldest holiday commemorating the bombardment of Fort McHenry and the writing of "The Star-Spangled Banner!"  Events begin with a Friday evening salute from Federal Hill with muskets and cannon!  After the ceremony the reenactors will board sailing boats and return with the 30'x42' replica flag to Fort McHenry.
