On Saturday, May 10, Historic Jamestowne and Jamestown Settlement will mark the 407th anniversary of the 1607 founding in Virginia of America’s first permanent English settlement.

A variety of family-friendly activities, military and maritime demonstrations, and traditional music and entertainment will take place at both sites.
