The 2018
MeckDec Noon Commemoration

243rd Anniversary of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence
Friday
, May 18, 2018 12:00 p.m.

Uptown at Trade and Tryon.  Plan to come out and celebrate this annual commemoration in Charlotte.  The MeckDec celebration has hosted four former Presidents (Taft, Wilson, Eisenhower and Ford), military Generals, a First Lady and countless dignitaries. This year is the 50th anniversary of First Lady Bird’s visit to Charlotte for the MeckDec celebration in 1968. 

We will celebrate the signing of the declaration, the spirit of our community and the distinct and rebellious history that binds our community together. Events will include Military and Colonial Re-enactors, Historical Readings, horses, military parades, cannon firing and good ol’ American-styled patriotic celebration of who we are as a people.

 

Don’t miss out on this free event celebrating Charlotte and its people!
