There is no more inspirational place to celebrate the Fourth of July than Monticello, the home of the author of the Declaration of Independence. Since 1963, more than 3,000 people from every corner of the globe have taken the oath of citizenship at the annual Monticello Independence Day Celebration and Naturalization Ceremony.

We hope you will join us at 9 am for the 53rd Annual Independence Day Celebration and Naturalization Ceremony on Monticello’s West Lawn — one of America’s most moving July 4 events and the largest naturalization ceremony held outside of a courtroom.

This event is free and open to the public. Tickets are required for house tours. House tours begin after the ceremony.
