2019 – 4th of July Celebration
Brevard’s 4th of July Celebration is one of a kind!
Come join us in Downtown Brevard for our annual Fourth of July Celebration, taking place in 2019 on
Thursday, JULY 4TH
Brevard’s Fourth of July Celebration is Americana at its best:
The street festival runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm downtown. From there the party continues at Brevard College with the Transylvania Community Art Council’s Duck Race for Kreative Kids on King’s Creek at 6:00, as well as food, family time and celebration while awaiting the grand finale of the day – the Fireworks Extravaganza!
Kick off the day by running in Brevard Rotary’s Firecracker 5K and 10K Run starting from West Main Street, just past the post office, at 8:00am, and then come to the heart of town to check out our array of vendors and fun. You’ll find many fine arts and craftsmen, as well as non-profits and an array of games and interactive booths. Transylvania Community Arts Council hosts its 47th annual Fine Arts & Crafts Showcase on West Main Street.
And where else can you find elected officials reading the “Declaration of Independence” against the back drop of the American Flag? Live Music all day takes place at the Courthouse Gazebo from 10:00am until 5:00pm. We have performances for all ages!
A BIG favorite of this festival is The Transylvania Cruisers Club’s 25th annual Auto show of pre-1984 classic vehicles sprawled down South Broad Street. You can’t bring your pets to the festival because of city ordinance, but you CAN enter them in the Humane Society All Star Pet Show being held at Silvermont at 9:00am.
If you think you have the nerve, come show off your eating skills at Rocky’s hosts the 9th Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest in the afternoon.
Don’t miss this 4th of July celebration in downtown Brevard!
