34th Annual Carolina Celebration of Liberty

The Carolina Celebration of Liberty is the longest running event of its kind in our state. With the Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra from First Baptist, the 246th Army Band of The South Carolina National Guard, and a cast of all ages you will thrill at the sights and sounds of America as we celebrate our freedom as Americans and our freedom in Christ. From the founding of this land until now many have paid the price to preserve and protect our liberty.

So, we come together in freedom to honor God and thank Him for this free land that has been a beacon of freedom and liberty around the world.

A key part of each celebration is the honoring of our veterans as well as those presently serving.

Our veterans’ organizations are always very special guests, and they are well represented by their commanders and other officers.

We have had many distinguished special honorees and some of them include Medal of Honor recipients Colonel Charles Murray, Major General James Livingston, and Sergeant John Baker.

It was Governor Carroll Campbell’s official kick off for the welcome home week for Desert Storm. It has also been heralded and backed by Mayor Bob Coble for many years. In 2003 it moved to Williams Brice stadium under the name AMERICA 2003 as it was the official state celebration. Special guests have included virtually every commanding general from Fort Jackson during these 34 years as well as officials from Shaw Air Force Base and our own state guard. Other special guests and supporters have included Congressman Floyd Spence, Congressman Joe Wilson, Governor Henry McMaster, Governor Carroll Campbell, Governor Jim Hodges, Senator Strom Thurmond, Senator Tim Scott, Senator Lindsey Graham, Attorney General Alan Wilson and many other state and local elected officials.

WLTX News anchor JR Berry will be the Master of Ceremonies!
