Yorktown Independence Day Celebration

Wednesday, July 4, 2018

Independence Day in Yorktown is a free family-friendly celebration featuring a full lineup of events leading up to the big fireworks finale! The morning starts with a Yorktown Independence Day 8K run and 5K walk at York High School followed by a patriotic parade along Water and Main Streets.....

Throughout the day, along Riverwalk Landing, you can lounge on the beach, jam to live music, visit our shops, and explore our museums. Grab lunch or dinner in one of our restaurants or head home for your own family cookout--but don't forget to join us again that night!

Evening activities include a bell-ringing ceremony, patriotic concert, and an amazing fireworks display over the York River. Bring your flags; wear red, white, and blue; and celebrate America!
