Valdese Independence Day Celebration is held annually on the Friday before July 4th as part of the Family Friday Nights Summer Concert Series.
Each year the Town of Valdese celebrates Independence Day by holding an impressive fireworks display on the football field behind the Old Rock School. Regarded as one of the most impressive fireworks displays in the area, the Town of Valdese sponsors this celebration with a brilliant light display that bursts at a lower altitude which allows for a variety of swirls and explosions. Plenty of ooohs and ahhhs for everyone!
Main Street will close at 5pm to allow cars for the Classic & Antique Car Cruise In fill the downtown area. Amusement Rides for all ages on Faet Street and plenty of great eats!
