Your Guide to the Fourth of July in the Triangle!


We have an abundance of amazing fireworks shows around the Triangle! VisitRaleigh has a fantastic (and comprehensive) round-up here so be sure to check it out!


A few of our favorites:

  • Garner’s Independence Day Celebration: Enjoy two nights of fireworks with this event on Tuesday, July 3rd! The fun starts at 5:00 PM at the beautiful Lake Benson Park with lots of family-fun activities!

  • Knightdale’s July 4th Celebration: Arrive early to enjoy some amazing bites from a wide selection of food trucks, then settle into a spot at the spacious park to watch fireworks!


Where you’ll probably find us this year:

If you’d rather not grill out:

  • The Roast Grill: If you’re looking for a hotdog, or ten (who are we to judge?), head to this Raleigh landmark for a perfect grilled dog in an old school setting. Heads up: don’t ask for ketchup.

  • MoJoe’s Burger Joint: If a burger is more your speed, head to MoJoe’s where they have an endless variety of burger and sandwich options. Do not skip the onion rings.


Keeping it cool (indoor fun):

  • Jaws at the Alamo Drafthouse: Escape the sun and watch this summer classic -with multiple July 4th screenings- at this new theater in Raleigh featuring great food and cocktails! If you’re looking for even more to watch, check out their VHS rentals.

  • The North Carolina Roots of Artist Ernie Barnes: Newly opened, this exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History features unpublished and original paintings from this Durham native.
