Join us Tuesday, July 4th, 2017 for our
37th Anniversary Independence Day Celebration!

The fun starts Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at 4 p.m. at Municipal Park (325 McCullers Drive) with free family events on the field, basketball competitions, watermelon and ice cream giveaways, a hose down by the Clayton Fire Department and a live free music concert with the Central Park Band!

Enjoy food vendors, a cornhole tournament, inflatables and fair rides, bingo and raffles throughout the day and night!

The fireworks shoot off at dark with increased seating area and added bleachers!  

PLEASE NOTE: Views of the fireworks from locations like Town Square and Horne Square on Main Street (where you may have watched from in the past) will be obscured. So if you want to see ALL the fireworks - more shells than we've had in most years past - you've got to be at Municipal Park on July 4!!​

After the fireworks, the live music, inflatables and rides will run another half hour after the show. That way, you can have more fun instead of sitting in traffic

Scroll down or click here to see the full schedule and map of events.  Scroll down or click here to see the Clayton Police plan to get you home as quickly and safely as possible. There will be HANDICAP parking at Municipal Park - please come down Stallings street and speak to a police officer directing traffic. The will allow you through to the handicap parking on site. Street parking is available throughout downtown along all residential streets and public parking lots, we just ask that you do not block driveways. Click here to see the street closures.
