Jacksonville 4th of July

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

Come check out The Jumbo Shrimp for their specialty, patriotic “frozen treat” jerseys to help celebrate our Nation’s independence. Watch as the Jumbo Shrimp take on the Chattanooga Lookouts and redefine the meaning of “BOMBs bursting in air” (That’s my baseball pun).

Fun fact: you can log on to jaxshrimp.com to bid on these one of a kind July 3rd jerseys!!

Additionally, in partnership with the Nimnicht Family Of Dealerships, The Jumbo Shrimp are proud to give away patriotic Jumbo Shrimp caps to the first 2,000 fans through the gates. To top it off, stick around for the largest fireworks show of the season following the game as we celebrate American Independence.

This game annually sells out so be sure to secure your tickets NOW!

Where will you be for the 4th?

Downtown Jacksonville

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.

  • When: Thursday, July 4, 2019,  9:45 pm
  • Where: 2 Independent Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32202
  • Cost: Free

Riverside Arts Market

Jacksonville 4th of July

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.

River Stage schedule:

  • 6:30: Arvid Smith
  • 8:15: LPT
  • 9:45: Fireworks


Jacksonville Beach

If you are unable to make it Downtown, Jacksonville Beach also puts on a fabulous fireworks display at the Jax Beach Pier. It is recommended that you arrive early and bring your own chair and/or blankets that suit your needs.

Our Calendar of Events is rapidly evolving, and daily updates ensure that everything Jacksonville has to offer is outlined clearly for you.
