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.”
