Valdese Independence Day Celebration on None

Downtown Valdese (Rodoret & Main Street)

No upcoming dates for this event.

2023 Independence Day will be held in conjunction with Valdese Summer Concert Series on June 30, 2023.

Each year the Town of Valdese celebrates Independence Day by holding an impressive fireworks display on the football field behind the Old Rock School. Regarded as one of the most impressive fireworks displays in the area, the Town of Valdese sponsors this celebration with a brilliant light display that bursts at a lower altitude which allows for a variety of swirls and explosions. Plenty of ooohs and ahhhs for everyone! 

Main Street will close at 5pm to allow cars for the Classic & Antique Car Cruise-In to fill the downtown area. Download the Cruise In Rules & Map Here - Participants must follow all guidelines outlined in this document to participate.

Amusement Rides for all ages & plenty of great eats! Bella Brush Face Painting!
