Oyster Bay, NY: Sagamore Hill National Historic Site is celebrating Flag Day, Sunday, June 14 with a number of free family fun activities. Flag Day was set aside as the day to commemorate the adoption of the United States flag by the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777.
Join Park Rangers and volunteers in tracing the development of the Stars & Stripes from the birth of the nation to today through flag-related crafts for children, including an opportunity to learn about the symbolism and traditions of flag design by developing your own flag. In addition, the North Point Brass Quintet will offer a patriotic musical performance on Theodore Roosevelt’s porch.
Children craft activities begin at 1:00PM under the tent behind the visitor center. The brass band concert is from 2:00- 4:00PM from the west porch of the Theodore Roosevelt Home. The public is encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the concert from the lawn. Both events are free. For further information about the site or special programs, check out our website at
