Independence Day fun will return this year to the historic Jacinto Courthouse.

Organizers have announced the annual Jacinto Fourth of July Celebration will be held this year on Saturday, July 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Long known as the state’s largest political speaking, the annual celebration traditionally brings political speakers, live music, arts and crafts vendors, food vendors and more to the grounds of the historic courthouse.

While the pandemic forced the cancellation of the event last year, newly appointed Jacinto Foundation Executive Director Charlette Bain Foster said they’re thrilled to be bringing it back this year.

“It is very important to me and the board of directors that we continue this amazing celebration,” said Foster.

They are currently seeking vendors for booths for arts and crafts, food, local farmers and others. Booths will be $25 each.

Organizers are also seeking interested political speakers, musicians/singers, line dancing groups and anyone else interested in being a part of the event.

Those interested should email Foster at cbfoster15@gmail.com and including their contact name, cell phone number, what their interest is and description of items to be sold.
