Fourth of July in Fredericksburg, Texas

Celebrate our nation’s birthday with a jam-packed day—and weekend—of exciting family-friendly events in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. It all starts July 4 morning at 8am with the annual Kiddie Parade. Enter your little ones and get the camera ready! Shortly after is the Community Parade down Main Street. Grab your front row view, wave your flag and enjoy the patriotic buzz in the air—literally—as the aircraft flyover marks the official start of the procession

From here, meander to various activities including the annual Chili Cookoff at Becker Vineyards and the July 4th Celebration at Luckenbach, Texas before reconvening at day’s end for a jaw-dropping fireworks display. The fun doesn’t have to end there. Stay through July 7 for a weekend full of events like the First Friday Art Walk, World War II Living History Reenactments at the Pacific Combat Zone, and live pari-mutuel horse racing.
