July 4th Concert and Fireworks 

July4-PatchJeff_HammondLet freedom Ring!  The City of Acworth and the Acworth Business Association are proud to present one of the largest fireworks extravaganzas in Metro Atlanta.

Each year on July 4th, live music and fireworks take place at Cauble Park.  Live music will start at 5:30 p.m.  Fireworks will begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. (subject to change depending on weather).

Admission to the event and concert is free!  Tables are available to purchase for the July 4 concert.  Tables are $50 each for City of Acworth residents and $70 for non-residents.  With the table you get 6 chairs and one parking pass.  This parking pass will allow you to park at Cauble Park as long as spots remain available.  Parking at Cauble Park is by pass only on July 4 but you are not guaranteed a parking spot at Cauble Park with this pass, so please plan on arriving early.  Anyone who parks at Cauble will not be permitted to leave once the fireworks have begun.  We will allow cars to leave the park once the fireworks have concluded and the crowd has cleared out.

If you do not have a parking pass or if the parking is full, you will need to park downtown and walk down to the park.  Shuttles will not be running for this event.  Handicap parking will be available at McCall Primary School and there will be a shuttle provided for handicap attendees.  Handicap shuttles begin at noon.
