Boston Events: Harborfest, America's Biggest Fourth of July Celebration

Over two centuries ago in Boston, the dream of democracy launched the American Revolution, creating a country dedicated to freedom and liberty - an idea unheard of at the time. Celebrate Independence Day at Boston Harborfest, America's largest Fourth of July festival. It seems like the whole city comes out for this remarkable festival, which features historical reenactments, Freedom Trail walks, Boston Duck Tours, plus live music and entertainment leading up to Tuesday, July 14th.

You still have time to get in on the action - and to remember the ideals that America was founded on. Events at this year's Boston Harborfest include:

  • Arts at Harborfest Art Exhibition and Sale at Christopher Columbus Park (July 1)
