4th at the Fort Celebration

Main Post Parade Field


Join us for the 4th at the Fort Celebration! This year will be our BIGGEST event yet! We will have not one, not two, but THREE artists plus the 82nd Rock Band to celebrate with us! The three artists are from three different genres - there will be music for everyone to enjoy! In addition to our musical guests, there will be parachute free-fall demonstrations, the popular flag ceremony, food and beverage and, of course, fireworks! Kids can once again enjoy Kiddieland for free thanks to Fayetteville Dodge Ram and Liberty Ford of Fayetteville.

Pets, glass bottles, and BBQ grills are not allowed. View the full list of prohibited items (.pdf).

Attendees are encouraged to arrive early due to heavy traffic flow. The event is free and open to the public.
