Independence Day Celebration

Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 9:30am to 5:00pm

Come celebrate the best July 4th in history with old-fashioned, patriotic family fun.

See the full daily schedule.

For the safety and comfort of all guests, all coolers, bags, chairs, and backpacks will be subject to inspection at the point of admission.

Join in the fun as the martial band leads the citizens' procession as they march through the streets. Cheer and huzzah during a rousing patriotic reading of the Declaration of Independence and sign a giant reproduction of the document.

Make your own tri-cornered hat to wear as you learn to drill with the Sturbridge Militia. Learn dances done by 19th-century Americans and play a game of "base ball."

Watch music and other special performances on the Common.

New! Naturalization Ceremony

Witness 85 people take the oath of citizenship in front of a federal judge and dignitaries on the Village Common.


Enjoy a delicious buffet dinner at the Oliver Wight Tavern from 4:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Reservations required.


Return in the evening for one of the largest fireworks displays in the area!

Food and beverages, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase so you can enjoy a picnic on the Common.
