Celebrate the Fourth of July

Minneapolis Fireworks

Whether you’re feeing extra patriotic this Fourth of July weekend or you’re just looking for something to do in the Twin Cities area, there is tons to do this time of year. Have some fun outdoors and enjoy the summer weather while it lasts at these local events!


Most Chambers of Commerce will post when and where your community's fireworks are taking place. They'll also let you know what other events are taking place near you all weekend.
Farmer's Fourth of July

Visit the Oliver H. Kelley Farm in Elk River for a day of 19th-century festivities! Play games like town ball or baseball or bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy on the lawn. You'll also see the spring lambs and calves and enjoy some time with the rest of the farm animals. Sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society.
1899 Independence Day Celebration

Historic Forestville in Grand Rapids is the site of this all-day event. Experience Independence Day as it was over two centuries ago with a grand ceremony, performances by the local glee club and an old-timey game of baseball. There will also be pie and watermelon contests and sack and three-legged races for the kids.
Ft. Snelling Mock Battle

Check out Historic Fort Snelling on the 4th to see what life was like in the early 1800s. There will be cannon salutes, a War of 1812 mock battle on the Parade Ground, a military dress parade, and patriotic fife drum music. Visitors can explore the history of slavery in Minnesota and the part Fort Snelling played in the great debate over freedom during the 1800s.
Harkin Store Independence Celebration

Sunday the 6th will bring the celebration to the Harkin Store in New Ulm. The New Ulm Battery will start at 1:00 with the firing of the old 1862 cannon every half hour and on the hour. Enjoy cold treats while listening about the 1870s riverboat town of West Newton and the Harkin Store. Bring a lawn chair or blanket or sit on the porch for a relaxing afternoon.
