Independence in the Park

Sponsored by General Mills Covington

Come early and stay late!

American Idol's Bo Bice on the Covington Stage 2013

Friday the 4th of July in Covington, Georgia is the place you want to be. You and your friends and family are invited to Independence in the Park Music Fest 2014! 

Come early and browse the shops and eateries that line the Downtown Covington Square. And as the town begins to buzz with live music, many local food vendors will be setting up to fill the air with the scents of festival food. As you browse the local shops, antique shops, gift stores, and streets lined with regional artisans and craftsmen, you will find fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.

When the cool of the evening sets in, two stages will give way to nine bands and multiple hours of live music of all types. The music will lead us up to an extraordinary display of fantastic fireworks. This year's display of 4th of July Fireworks over our iconic, historic Courthouse will be bigger and better than ever before!

After the fireworks, just when you think the night is over, think again! Join us for the After Bang Street Dance, or grab a late night cocktail from the roof of the Mystic Grill or the Patio at Amici Café.

Main Street Covington is so excited to bring you this fantastic fun for the whole family celebration of our Great Nation! So why fight the crowds at Lenox or Stone Mountain? Covington is located just a short drive from Atlanta. Come experience a 4th of July Small Town Style with Independence in the Park...Come Celebrate with Us!
