Welcome back to live events for the July 4th holiday, Fayetteville! We have your official guide to all things Independence Day related for the region.

After two years of either no, or limited, events in the region, it’s good to be celebrating America in style once again.

As the unofficial Home of Freedom, there’s a lot to do in our region for the Fourth of July, so here’s a look at the events, restrictions, and so much more for food, fireworks and fun.

The big highlights this year around Fayetteville include Walker Hayes at the Fort Bragg Celebration, the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra at Festival Park, a cookout and fireworks with the Fayetteville Woodpeckers, fireworks in Hope Mills, Pinehurst, Lillington, Laurinburg, Clinton and more.

And we are on the lookout for more fun stuff going on, so make sure to let us know what we missed!

You’ll find information below on the following events (with more to come as we hear about them!):

The annual Fort Bragg July 4th Celebration returns for 2022! This year’s event will feature musical headliner Walker Hayes, as well as parachute free-fall demonstrations, our popular flag ceremony, fireworks presented by USAA and food and beverages. New for 2022 – Craft Beer Garden!

Pets, glass bottles, and BBQ grills are not allowed. View the full list of prohibited items (.pdf).

Attendees are encouraged to arrive early due to heavy traffic flow. The event is free and open to the public.

The event is free, as always, and open to the public, but everyone will need gate access to get on Fort Bragg for Walker Hayes and all the rest of the festivities.

“Event is open to the public; gate access required. If you are a Non-DOD ID Card Holder, you must visit the Visitor Center located at the All American Gate to obtain gate access for the event. July 4th Celebration visitor passes may be granted up to 30 days in advance of the event.”

To determine the most patriotic states, WalletHub compared the 50 states across two key dimensions, “Military Engagement” and “Civic Engagement.”

We evaluated those dimensions using 13 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the highest level of patriotism.

Finally, we determined each city’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its overall score and used the resulting scores to rank-order the states.
