10 Fourth of July Events In and Around San Antonio



The Fourth of July is that one day in the summer when no one has a valid excuse for being antisocial. Unless you're protecting our planet from an alien attack, you probably aren't tied up with work and can make it to your buddy Jeff's barbecue. We know it's tempting to stay in and relax on your day off this Fourth, but that's just not what the founding fathers fought for.

Lucky for you, we've put together a list of Independence Day events happening around the city. So throw on your best bermuda shorts, lather on some oil-free SPF 30, and let's show some appreciation for this beautiful country we live in. 

San Antonio's Official July Fourth Celebration

1103 Cincinnati Ave.
Mon 7/4  8am- 9:30pm

This Woodlawn Park blowout is the biggest Fourth of July event in the city. Featuring carnival games, food and a full day of live music, there will be fun activities for the whole family to take part in. The event will even host a 5K run, so you don't have to skip a day of cardio. The celebration will close out with a mammoth firework show over the lake that people come from all over the city to catch a glimpse of. Be sure to arrive early or take an Uber — parking will certainly be a nightmare.
