For over 200 years, Southport has celebrated our nation's Independence in a big way, and they invite you to join the celebrations! The city of Southport first celebrated our nation's independence in 1792 as the "Festival of Free Men," and continued the celebrations for two centuries, when the festival incorporated as the N.C. 4th of July Festival in 1972. Today, the festival celebrates freedom as it remembers the sacrifices, with some family fun all week long.
Festival events and celebrations include the official North Carolina 4th of July Festival Parade and classic car show and the Festival Finale Fireworks, dance contests, live music, children's games, fire fighters competition, naturalization ceremony, flag raising ceremony, flag retirement ceremony, veteran's recognition ceremony, regional art show, raffles, entertainment, arts and crafts fair with over 100 booths, historic and cultural tours, patriotic ceremonies, and more throughout the festival week! There will also be the annual Beach Day Events on Oak Island.
