City of Williamsburg, William & Mary, Colonial Williamsburg to Celebrate Community


Appreciation Day on July 3


Williamsburg, VA – On Sunday, July 3, 2022, the City of Williamsburg, William & Mary, and

Colonial Williamsburg will once again host Community Appreciation Day on the lawn of the Art

Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, 301 S. Nassau St.


Started last year as a thank you to the community for their collective strength and resilience

throughout the COVID-19, Community Appreciation Day is now a new annual tradition hosted

by Williamsburg’s three pillar institutions.


Community Appreciation Day begins at 5 p.m. Sunday, July 3, with family-friendly lawn games

such as giant Connect-4, giant chess and checkers, giant horseshoes, kick croquet, ring toss,

and cornhole. Williamsburg Public Art Council is sponsoring a community art project, setting up

large canvases for people of all ages to paint. This event is free and open to the public.


Throughout the event, Sno-to-Go will be serving free sno-balls and ice cream. The day ends

with a performance from the U.S. Air Force Heritage of America Band, part of the free Colonial

Williamsburg American Music Concert Series produced in partnership with the City of

Williamsburg. The concert series includes a musical performance each night, July 1-4.


Community Appreciation Day started last year as a way to recognize the community for their

extraordinary efforts to get us through the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mayor Douglas Pons said.

“This new tradition is one small way for us to show our gratitude for the community’s everyday

commitment to make Williamsburg an excellent place to live, work, and play.”
