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

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. 

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.”
