Need plans for 4th of July? We’ve put together a list of some of the biggest events in the area to help you celebrate the holiday! There are tons of firework shows, festivals, bar crawls, and concerts going on–we’re so excited!

Celebrate Fourth of July at Fairchild with loads of things to do, especially for the kids! A children’s bike parade will be taking place at 11AM–be prepared, winners of the best-decorated bike or wagon contest will receive special prizes! Check-in starts at 10AM, to register, just click here

Following the parade, The Lakeside Cafe will be having a BBQ lunch buffet for just $35! You can feast on some finger-lickin’ options that will leave you wanting seconds (or thirds)! Some of the food options include Lobster Mac n’ Cheese, Angus burgers, Rustic potato salad, Kosher hot dogs, and plenty more.

After stuffing your face, cool down with some Arctic Shaved Ice! The “Red,  White, and Blue” butterfly release will be happening twice, where you can get an up-close look at the winged wonders.

That’s not all! Fairchild will also be having face-painting, coloring activities, live music, and a live DJ. This event is the perfect day-time event before preparing for fireworks at night.

Once the evening rolls around, you’ll want to check out the Coconut Grove Fourth of July Concert and Firework Show. Bring out those picnic chairs and blankets for a relaxing yet exhilarating night to enjoy with your loved ones–that includes your dogs!  

Miami’s oldest neighborhood, Coconut Grove, definitely knows how to party. It’s hard to pass up good BBQ and local brews along with more vendors selling yummy food and refreshments.

Say hello to summer as you enjoy a bunch of outdoor activities for all ages leading up to the annual fireworks show. As the city famous fireworks display goes off, Yoli Mayor will be lighting up the stage while singing American classics.

The party doesn’t have to stop at 9PM. Join the after party at Hotel Arya for live music on the rooftop.

The Wharf is one of our favorite places to celebrate the holidays because of the food, music, and great energy. Just add fireworks and you’ve got yourself an Independence Day celebration that you won’t forget. Star-Spangled Awesome is being hosted by Indulge Magazine for a day full of fun, food, and fireworks.

The views of the fireworks are going to be A-MAZ-ING. Therefore, make sure to have those cameras ready for some stellar photos. The Wharf has so many good photo areas in general and the way they decorate the venue makes the vibes all the better for the holidays.

Enjoy food by Lung Yai Thai Tapas, CRACKED by Chef Adrianne, Spris Artisan Pizza, MOJO Donuts, La Santa Taqueria, OG Ceviche & Seafood Shack, and Sweet Melody Crafted Ice Cream
