Independence Day is fast approaching, and Will Smith fighting Aliens does not seem to be on the radar this year. That being said, we have managed to find so many great ways to ensure your Jacksonville 4th of July will be that exciting.
Jacksonville 4th of July – Pre-Fourth Festivities
Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp Independence Day Game

Where will you be for the 4th?
Lets be honest- when in Jacksonville, there is only one place to be for the Fourth of July celebrations downtown by the river.
When I first mentioned I moved to Downtown Jacksonville, I was warned of two very specific days: the Florida-Georgia Football game and the Fourth of July. Both days have come and gone many times and I have yet to be disappointed.
The Downtown Fourth of July celebration is like nothing I have ever seen. It’s a unique time for everyone in Jacksonville to come together and flood the Bank of the St. Johns River in awe of the most elegant firework displays around.
Put on your red, white and blue to join us along the majestic St. Johns River for the best July 4th Fireworks show on the First Coast! The show will begin at 9:45 p.m.
The show will be seen from both the North and South Banks, in addition to viewing from Brooklyn and under the Fuller Warren Bridge, where the Riverside Arts Market is held.

Riverside Arts Market
As you might have noticed above, the location of the Riverside Arts Market is a great viewing area. Fortunately, the Arts Market is thinking the same thing.
They will be throwing a party for the Fourth to celebrate in everyone’s favorite space under the Fuller Warren Bridge. There will be fun for everyone, and some of our favorite food trucks and vendors from Riverside Arts Market. There will be live music, beer by Salt Life Food Shack and Intuition Ale Works, kids activities, and the City of Jacksonville, Florida – Government‘s firework show at 9:45pm.
