Celebrate where independence was won! 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 at 8 a.m. with an 8K Run and 5K Walk (please check back for details closer to the race) followed by a patriotic parade along Water and Main Streets. Throughout the day, you can lounge on the beach, jam to live music, visit local shops, and explore several museums.

Bring your flags; wear red, white, and blue; and come together to celebrate America!
