Celebrating Constitution Day and Citizenship Day with Naturalization Ceremonies

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day are observed on the same day each year, September 17th. This day is set aside to celebrate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 and also to observe and recognize the responsibilities of all U.S. citizens! Because the holiday follows on a Saturday, it will be observed on Friday, September 16th.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will mark this occasion by holding special naturalization ceremonies across the country starting on September 16th. Many of the ceremonies will be held using museums, historic and public libraries, government landmarks and national park sites as their backdrop. The U.S. Courts will live stream naturalization ceremonies from Ellis Island and Lincoln Memorial, “Constitution Day & Citizenship Day Coverage Live on Sept. 16“, on September 16th at 10:45 a.m. (ET). You can also follow the actives on @USCIS on Twitter and Facebook.com/USCIS.
