Independence Day is a big deal in all of America, including Louisville, Kentucky. Let’s see what you can do in the city on the fourth of July.


The celebration will take place in Waterfront Park. It is located by the gorgeous Ohio river, so don’t expect to witness anything less than beautiful greenery and amazing waterfront views.


The administration of the event has prepared lots of cool activities for any age. There will be a variety of family activities to engage in with your little ones, a tremendous number of patriotic flags, a mouthwatering food court, live music, and fireworks.


The organizers have invited numerous live bands to play music of various genres, such as funk, hip-hop, house, garage, R&B, jazz, metal, techno, you name it. The music genre spectrum is really broad, so you’ll be able to dance all you want while waiting for the fireworks. There will also be a bunch of awesome DJs and producers to talk to.

Food & Drinks

The event also includes many kinds of food to choose from. Even the most demanding foodies will find something tasty to snack on: waffles, hot dogs, corn dogs, cakes, etc. Plus, there will be a beer garden.


A fireworks display is an integral part of the Waterfront celebration. The show normally begins at 10 pm, after all the other festivities are over. The best part is that this pyrotechnic show in Louisville is truly safe to watch—all thanks to the administration’s precautions and preparation.


Admission is free, so everybody is welcome to join the event. You should also know that some items aren’t allowed at the event due to safety reasons. These are: personal fireworks, outside alcohol and meals, and glass items. So keep this info in mind and remember to book your accommodation in advance, as Louisville is super busy this time of year.
