WELCOME to the Official Web Page for Lake Havasu City, Arizona's
Annual U.S. Constitution Week Celebration.
Come experience the Premier "Constitution Week" Celebration in America, as Lake Havasu City celebrates the world's greatest governing document like no other city!
This unique, week-long event includes events that educate, promote, and celebrate the U.S.
Constitution in picturesque Lake Havasu City.
What is Constitution Week?
In 1955 the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) petition congress to recognize Constitution Week on a national level. On August 2, 1956 President Eisenhower signed Constitution Week into law.
Identified as US Code 36-108.
The code states that the President of the United States is requested to issue each year a proclamation to designate September 17-23 as Constitution Week and inviting the people of the United States to observe Constitution Week, in schools, churches, and other suitable places with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
Lake Havasu City U. S. Constitution Week is committed to the annual national observance of the United States Constitution. Our mission statement is to educate, promote and celebrate the greatest governing document that changed the world! The United States Constitution! The question which should be asked is: “if we as a country would have followed in the footsteps as requested by President Eisenhower, Daughters of the American Revolution and the U. S. Congress would our country be so divided today?” (US Code 36-108)
This week of recognition is not about political parties! This event caters to those who are supportive of the United States Constitution and desire to learn more about the American Founding with emphasis on its origin, philosophy and interpretation.
The event invites educators as well as street smart individual who deal with the constitution on a daily basis. The event also celebrates and promotes the U. S. Constitution by means such as a parade, fireworks, constitutional trivia contest, Run for the Republic 5k, and kids programs. Additional activities can be created and are not limited to the examples above. It is truly a "We the People" event.
Organize a Constitution Week celebration in your home town!
