July Fourth

Enjoy an All-American small-town celebration in Fredericksburg each Fourth of July. 

Festivities start bright and early on July 4th with the kiddie parade at Marktplatz followed by the Fredericksburg Fourth of July Community Parade down Main Street featuring dozens of floats decked out in the patriotic best and a patriotic program at Marktplatz. 

Festivities continue with annual favorites like the July 4th Chili Cookoff at Becker Vineyards, a Fourth of July Celebration at Luckenbach Texas and more. 

Of course there are fireworks - the City of Fredericksburg fireworks display at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park is a can’t miss.

The holiday also kicks off the summer horse racing season at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds.

One of the area's top attractions, Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, is a popular destination for the holiday weekend. You will not be able to enter the park or use the trails without a pre-existing reservation. If you do not have a pre-existing reservation, please explore one of these other great outdoor areas in Fredericksburg.
