Ways to Celebrate Flag Day

On June 14, show your love for the stars and stripes

Flag Day is June 14! The holiday commemorates the United States’ adoption of its flag on June 14, 1777, and across the nation, communities throw patriotic celebrations in honor of the flag and the country.

Join the party by attending one of hundreds of parades across the country, or by hosting a USA-themed picnic or barbecue. Look to our 10 Best Menus for Summer Entertaining for ideas on what kinds of summery American favorites to serve.

A patriotic cocktail is the perfect pairing for a Flag Day picnic. Our Rouge, White, and Blue Cocktail (originally made at Bar Rouge in Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital), is sure to put you in high spirits.

Finish the meal with a red, white, and blue dessert, or try one of our recipes for apple pie—after all, what’s more American than that?

Don’t forget to bring out the sparklers—a preview of July Fourth fireworks—and, of course, to hang up a flag.
