It’s that time again!

The Rising Sun Vineyard’s 10th annual Texas Independence Day Jam is here! Three days of live music, food, local Texas wines, and great beer!

But if you’re new to The Colony, an incredible, master-planned community located in the serene riverside city of Bastrop, you may be wondering what the Texas Independence Day Jam fuss is all about.

Before we delve into the details of all the fun-filled events lined up for your entertainment, let’s take it back to history class. 

What is Texas Independence Day? 

Texas Independence Day commemorates the March 2, 1836 passage of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Texas declared independence from Mexico at this time. The declaration was signed by sixty delegates from around the state. Its text, in many respects, matches the 1776 Declaration of Independence of the United States, which is honored on Independence Day, or “July 4th.”

The Republic of Texas was annexed to the United States by a joint resolution of the United States Congress nine years after the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence. On December 29, 1845, the United States Congress admitted Texas as the 28th state of the Union. Texas Independence Day is a state holiday in the state of Texas.
