Join us on the grounds of Fonthill Castle to celebrate Independence Day with some old-fashioned fun, where guests enjoy a day of fun, food, games, crafts, entertainment and live music. Highlights of the day include the children’s decorated bike parade, wheelbarrow and sack races, tug-of-war, live musicians, and food trucks. Antique bicycles, historic town ball (a precursor to baseball!) and other fun activities make this a day to remember.

You can buy your tickets online in advance or at the door. Tickets sold at the door will be cash only.
