Independence: Fourth of July Celebrations
Old Sturbridge Village
Saturday, July 2 – Monday, July 4

Celebrate Independence Day Weekend with a citizens’ parade, fife and drum music, cannon demonstrations, and more at Old Sturbridge Village! Learn how and why early 19th-century New Englanders celebrated the holiday, hear a stirring reading of the Declaration of Independence, and hear excerpts from Frederick Douglass’s 1852 address “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July.” You can also join in a game of old-fashioned style baseball and watch a toy hot air balloon flight.
