Friendly City Fourth Logo

The 2021 Friendly City Fourth event and fireworks have been canceled this year due to uncertainties related to COVID-19.

We had to make the decision about whether or not to plan this event & to reserve the pyrotechnics company in February while COVID numbers were still high and statewide gathering restrictions were still in place. We know this is disappointing to some, but we are excited to welcome you downtown for a free community event over Labor Day weekend. Please follow our website, newsletter, or social media for details about BEST.WEEKEND.EVER. on Sept. 3-5, 2021!

Don’t worry! Independence Day Celebrations are still happening across the Valley…


Valley 4th RUN is back in 2021! Tell everyone you know, bring your smiling faces and let’s come together as a community in downtown Harrisonburg. We need this. It’s HAPPENING. Let’s show up!
