Celebrate America’s birthday in America’s coolest small town. We invite you and your family to join our community in celebration and to experience the magic of our small-town Independence Day Celebration. The Fayetteville Lion's Club will host the 4th of July Celebration kicking off the festivities on the evening of the July 3rd with live music leading into a town-wide celebration on the 4th. This free event features fun activities for the whole family, vendors, food, live entertainment, and more. Enjoy ice cream and a day full of wholesome summer fun. Nothing says summer like a watermelon spitting contest or try your hand at our hula hooping contest, adults are welcome to join. Do you think you have the best cobbler? Enter our Cobbler baking contest. One of the highlights of the celebration is the Fayetteville Lion's Club 4th of July Parade where you will see an explosion of patriotism with decked out floats. Bring a blanket and stay all evening, relax on the courthouse lawn and enjoy some live music.
