Florida Travel Guide to July 4 in Tallahassee

Plan on spending the Fourth of July in Northern Florida? Celebrate the birth of America at a free concert given by the Fabulous Thunderbirds during the annual July 4th festival at Tom Brown Park.

The Celebrate America July 4 Festival at Tom Brown Park

It starts at 5:30pm with a welcome ceremony  followed by a moving naturalization ceremony for new American citizens. The highlight, however, will be a free concert with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, featuring Kim Wilson. After the concert, stick around for the dazzling display of fireworks.

For kids

You enjoy the music and shop from the art and craft vendors while the children play in a special area just for them. Take them out of the heat and let them cool off in the slip and slides and other water activities. They’ll enjoy fun and games, making crafts and playing on the bounce houses.


The City’s mass transit system, StarMetro, is providing free shuttle service from the Koger Office Center to Tom Brown Park starting at 5:30pm with return shuttles heading back to Koger after the fireworks end.
