The N.C. 4th of July Festival is held annually in the City of Southport July 2nd – 4th and Beach Day in the Town of Oak Island June 30th. The City of Southport first celebrated our nation’s independence in 1792 as the “Festival of Free Men”. Over the years, the name of the festival changed until 1972, when the festival incorporated as the N.C. 4th of July Festival. Today, the festival celebrates our freedom as it remembers the sacrifices with some fun thrown into the mix. This year will be no exception. Join the over 50,000 people who attend the N.C. 4th of July Festival each year. Festival events include: Naturalization Ceremony, Flag Raising Ceremony, Flag Retirement Ceremony, Veteran’s Recognition Ceremony, Over 100 Arts & Craft Booths, Food Vendors, Parade, Live Stage Entertainment, Fireworks, Franklin Square Art Gallery’s National Art Show, Shine & Show Classic Car Show, Voter Registration, Old Jail Tours, Used Book Sale, Lions Club Boat Raffle Drawing, Cape Fear Yacht Club’s Commodore Regatta, St. Philip Episcopal Chapel of the Cross Open, Children’s Entertainment, Children’s Games, Pancake Breakfast, and Firefighters Competition.
