Constitution Day is an American federal holiday that recognizes the ratification of the United Sates Constitution, and also recognizes all who have become citizens due to either coming of age or naturalization.  It is observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.   The law establishing the holiday was created in 2004 with the passage of an amendment by Senator Robert Byrd to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004.  In addition to renaming the holiday “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day,” the act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day.

Coast Guard Training Center’s Recruit Band will be perform at the event.
