Get Ready for Civic Season!

The Summer Tradition Kicks-Off on June 19.

About Civic Season

Civic Season, held from June 19 through July 4, is a new celebration to learn and grow as citizens.  AMERICAN HERITAGE Chocolate has been an integral part of launching Civic Season since its inception in 2021, including underwriting the Civic Season website, participating in kick-off events and providing chocolate samples at events across the country. As a result, it has grown into a vibrant, beloved summer tradition perfect for people of all ages, especially younger generations, who are the changemakers of our country’s future.

Last year, there were Civic Season events, exhibits and celebrations in more than 300 communities, historic sites and museums. We expect even more this year!
