July 4th Fireworks

Your Guide to the July 4 South Jersey Fireworks, Parades, Events, and Festivals

This year, Independence Day falls on Sunday, July 4, 2021

Independence Day commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress in Philadelphia, PA. on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

This is a Federal holiday in the United Sates and is celebrated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, picnics, baseball games, along with many other private family and friends events.

Note: While Fireworks displays at public and private beaches, boardwalks, and lake shores are currently permitted, this year many communities have not had sufficient time to prepare and have  cancelled Independence Day events.

Stay tuned --- we will be updating this list as the event sponsors confirm this year's events.
