4th of July in Jackson and West Tennessee

June 29, 2018

Haven’t made your 4th of July plans yet?  According to Visit Jackson, TN’s calendar, you’ll have plenty of activities to choose from over the holiday.

Festivities in Jackson kick off on July 4th with the Firefighters Freedom Festival, a free, family-oriented festival and 4th of July fireworks. This event includes activities for children, food vendors, and live music. Join the Madison County Fire Department at McKellar-Sipes Regional Airport on Wednesday, July 4, 2018. Gates open at 3:00pm, and the music will begin at 4:00pm. You will not want to miss the headliner of the event, Rev. Jessie and the Holy Smokes! Later in the evening, enjoy a 30-minute firework show beginning around dusk!

Bring your lawn chair and blanket and visit the available concession stands while enjoying an evening of family fun in celebration of the 4th of July! Visit the Madison County Fire Department or call 731.424.5577 for more information.

Or celebrate the 4th with the Jackson Generals at the Ballpark at 6:00pm as they take on the Tennessee Smokies. Stick around after the game for a post-game fireworks show.
