Independence Day events in the Philadelphia Area for the whole family

See the 4th of July fireworks in Philadelphia, the city where the Declaration of Independence was signed! There are plenty of family-friendly Fourth of July festivals in and around Philly and we've rounded up our favorites, including the big Wawa show and concert at Eakins Oval and along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Gather along the Delaware River at either the Philly or Jersey side to see fireworks burst above the water.

If your crew prefers the suburban fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July, there are plenty of options. Some Fourth festivals include parades, while others boast live entertainment. Heading down to the Jersey shore for the Fourth of July? We have you covered with fireworks at the beach, including Wildwood.

No matter where you watch the fireworks, be sure to bring a blanket, lawn chair, and some snacks. Then, sit back and be mesmerized as the sky lights up - red, white, and blue. Happy Fourth!
