Whether you love fireworks, block parties, or are just looking for some good food, we’ve got you covered! Festivities in Atlanta are not limited to Independence Day, with a host of events starting Friday, July 2nd, and continuing until Monday, July 5th.

Some Fun Before the Big Day

This year July 4th falls on a Sunday. Luckily, there are plenty of Friday and Saturday night plans available. On Friday, July 2nd, Newton Park is holding a live music show with food and a fireworks show. Bright and early on Saturday, July 3rd, Peachtree City will hold a parade at 9 AM, with festivities continuing through the dusk with a fireworks show. Similarly, Lillian Web Pak is holding a fireworks show with food trucks, live music, inflatables, and more. For lovers of live music, Kennesaw’s Salute to America on Saturday, July 3rd, will include two stages for live music plus a host of food vendors and other activities.


Watching fireworks on the 4th of July is about as American as apple pie. There are no shortages of destinations to view the July 4th fireworks in Atlanta. Memorial Lawn at Stone Mountain Park offers both a fireworks show and Lasershow Spectacular, available from July 1st to July 5th. Dellinger Park will provide a concert, fireworks show, a place for children, food, and other activities. For those looking for some after-lunch plans on July 4th, we recommend the 4:00 PM parade and Rotary Celebration, starting at Veteran’s Memorial Park and ending at Greenville Street Park. Following the parade, Newnan High School's Drake Stadium will host some entertainment and food, with a fireworks show at dusk. Both Cauble Park and Roswell Area Park will be hosting firework shows at sunset with live music and food vendors.
