If you’re looking for a small-town, big-time 4th of July celebration with music, food, fun, a parade, a Beauty Pageant, a Vesper service, a Country Music show, and some end-the-night-light-up-the-sky fireworks, then make your way out to Gypsy Hill Park for a wonderful family 3-day event. And it’s all FREE!

The only thing you need to bring is your lawn chair. Happy Birthday America, which is centered around giving back to the community as well as remembering and celebrating America’s favorite holiday, was started in 1970 by Staunton’s favorite sons, The Statler Brothers. Second-generation country music duo Wilson Fairchild now headlines the event with their show on the night of the 4th with their special music guest, Grand Ole Opry member and Country Music legend Gene Watson. A big thanks to our presenting sponsors, First Bank and Charlie Obaugh Auto Group for their support. Come wave your red, white, and blue, and we’ll see you in the park!
