July 4th Celebrations
Sunday, July 3rd at Downtown WF and Heritage High School Stadium
Fireworks, games, live entertainment and more await you at Wake Forest’s 2022 Independence Day Celebration. This community extravaganza is the Town’s most eagerly anticipated summertime event serving up two days’ worth of free fun and excitement for the entire family.
The festivities get underway with the Fireworks Spectacular on Sunday, July 3, inside Husky Stadium on the campus of Heritage High School, 1150 Forestville Road. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., and the program begins at 6 p.m.
The Band of Oz, one of the southeast's most popular beach bands, will headline this year’s celebration, followed by an unforgettable 20-minute fireworks display. The fireworks show typically begins around 9:30 p.m.
The Independence Day revelry continues Monday, July 4, with the popular Children’s Parade. Area youngsters are invited to hop on their bicycles and be a part of their very own “walking parade.” The lineup begins at 10 a.m. at the intersection of North Main Street and West Juniper Avenue, near the Wake Forest Historical Museum, 414 N. Main St. The procession will get underway at 10:30 a.m.
The Independence Day festivities will conclude at 11 a.m. with Art in the Park. Sponsored by the Wake Forest Woman’s Club, free arts and crafts activities will take place inside the Community House, including the creation of various patriotic-themed crafts for all ages, cupcake decorating and more.
