On a day that’s all about patriotism, the Liberty Celebration is the perfect way to show off your pride for the red, white, and blue.

Free admission will leave your wallets full for the many food vendors on site.


Abbitt Planetarium – Spirit of America


If you’re not one for outdoor activities, The Virginia Living Museum in Newport News might be what you’re looking for. Inside their air-condition theater, the museum will put on a laser show that’s sure to stir your patriotism. With accompanying classic American music by such artists as Garth Brooks, John Fogerty, and more, you’ll enjoy your 4th of July as much as you would at any outdoor event. The price of admission is $6, with shows every hour from 5 to 9 PM.

Berkeley Plantation Wreath Laying Ceremony


Come pay your honors and respect to Benjamin Harrison V, Berkeley Plantation’s 18th-century owner, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence.

At the low price of $11 for adults and $6 for children, this is an experience you can’t afford to miss.


Williamsburg Fireworks


Beginning with the Salute to the States, which takes place behind the courthouse, the following celebration will include patriotic staples such as the reading of the Declaration of Independence, historic tavern dining, a performance of Colonial Williamsburg fifes and drums, a tribute to the men and women serving in our nation’s Armed Forces, and a fireworks show.
