With John Quincy Adams looking so dour in his portraits and photos, it's hard to imagine him dancing.  Yet, Adams studied dance while living in Europe as a child, attended dances in his college years, and even in the Old House at Peace field for his 80th birthday!  To honor his life-long interest of dance, Adams National Historical Park will celebrate the 250th birthday of John Quincy Adams with a dance hosted by the Commonwealth Vintage Dancers and the Rosewood Ensemble.

Each year on their birthday anniversaries the President of the United States sends a wreath to the church to be placed on the tombs of the Presidents. The tradition started during the administration of President Lyndon Johnson whereby a wreath of red, white and blue flowers are sent to the burial place of all deceased presidents on the anniversary of their birthday. The ceremonies are open to the public and attended by local, state and government officials.
