Rockin’ Independence Eve

RIE Logo

Celebrate our nation’s independence at Rockin’ Independence Eve, a free, family-oriented event that’s fun for all ages. This All-American event in Old Town Winchester is held annually on July 3rd and attracts over 4,000 people each year.

Live music featuring local favorite, Souled Out, will be held at the Taylor Pavilion between the Loudoun Street Mall and the Braddock Autopark. Opening for Souled Out is Shag, a band with a British Rock vibe. Also, enjoy the beer and wine garden and participate in the Snow White Grill Hamburger Eating Contest and cornhole games.

Numerous kids’ activities will be located throughout the Loudoun Street Mall, primarily near the splash pad.

The evening will be capped off with an impressive fireworks show. The fireworks will be launched from an area near the Mount Hebron Cemetery and coordinated by the Winchester Parks and Recreation Department. The fireworks will be viewable from several different locations throughout Old Town Winchester, but the best place to view the show will be from North Kent Street between Boscawen and Piccadilly Streets (viewing from the autopark roofs is prohibited).
