4th of July

The 4th of July. Our nation's birthday. A time for celebration and patriotism. What better way to spend it than coming to Colonial Beach (which is in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area, after all!) and enjoying a fun and fabulous Fourth with friends, family, fireworks and festivities?

Typical events that take place in Colonial Beach include things like:

  • Auto races at the Colonial Beach Dragway
  • Parade and picnic at the Pavilion in the nearby lovely Ebb Tide Beach subdivision
  • Independence Day celebrations at Stratford Hall and George Washington's Birthplace National Monument

    with Colonial hands-on children’s activities and costumed interpretation to celebrate the birthday of the United States.

  • Breakfast fundraiser at the Volunteer Rescue Squad
  • Kayaking trips at the Westmoreland State Park, and many more events, including live bands at Dockside and High Tides restaurants.

    Of course, the big weekend caps off with a grand display of fireworks at the Boardwalk.

    It's so much fun to anchor your boat in the Potomac River just offshore and watch the fireworks from there. Absolutely spectacular! Lay out a blanket and watch from the sandy beach if you want. The outdoor decks at Riverboat and High Tides restaurants are also great viewing spots, too.

    Take a look at our events calendar page for all the details.

    Note that the town Trolley has extended hours on 4th of July holidays. Service hours are 11:00am - 7:00pm on these days. Pay special attention to traffic and parking signs in town as well. Hawthorn Street is often closed to vehicle traffic for the big celebration.

    You might even catch a glimpse of the mighty bald eagle, as they are known to frequent our area.

    Have a happy, safe and fun Fourth!
