July 4th Fireworks

Saturday, July 5, 2014 - 6:00pm

The fireworks will be postponed to Saturday evening. Doors will open at 6:30 pm.-please note the change of time. Tickets purchased for Friday will be honored on Saturday evening.

Register securely online.

Tickets are $16 for both Members and non-Members.

Join us for an evening full of activities followed by 21st-century fireworks. Gates open at 6:00 with music, magic and more, followed by the fireworks at dusk. Children can take part in sack races and pie-eating contests, and visitors can enjoy magician Robert Olson, Blackstone Valley Bluegrass Band, fife and drum music, musket salutes by the Sturbridge Militia, and an historical reading of the Declaration of Independence by State Senator Stephen Brewer.

The Old Sturbridge Village setting is ideal for fireworks because there is no distracting “light pollution.” As an 1830s-style farm village, OSV has no street lights and traffic lights, so the fireworks appear even more vibrant. The fireworks show is one of the largest in the region, and has sold out in previous years. 

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

Highlights include:

Reading of the Declaration of Independence
Music, entertainment, games and contests, including pie-eating, sack races, and quoits (similar to horseshoes, popular in early New England)
Food, beverage and souvenir tents - including beer and wine
And of course, FIREWORKS!  

The Countryside opens for fireworks seating at 7:30 p.m., with seating limited to designated areas.
