Independence Day Celebration

Come celebrate our country’s Independence and experience the biggest and best fireworks display that Carteret County has in Atlantic Beach! The Independence Day Celebration is sure to honor our country. Be sure to bring your beach chairs, towels and blankets so you can enjoy the show!


This is a family event for everyone of all ages. No alcoholic beverages are permitted in the main event location or parking areas, however malt beverages in cups or cans are permitted on the beach.


There will be several areas for parking including around the “circle” along East Drive, West Drive, and Atlantic Blvd., the parking lot at CAMA lot on West Boardwalk, and the parking lot (it is a dirt/gravel lot) on the north side of Atlantic Blvd. It is expected for you to park safely and respect the nearby private property—please do NOT park in front of a person’s private driveway or fire hydrants. This is anticipated to be a huge event with a big crowd, please carpool so that you will be able to find the best parking spot. Also, take into consideration that vehicle traffic is expected to be heavy both before and after the fireworks show. Please be patient and use your common sense when coming to and leaving this event—your safety is the number one concern!


It is also encouraged for anyone who is able to walk or bicycle to the show to do so. If you are planning to walk to and from the public viewing area, please bring a flashlight for safety in helping to guide you and your party in the dark.


The fireworks are expected to be visible from the beach strand within a couple mile radius of the site. So if you don’t get up close, you will still be able to view the fireworks in all their splendor as they shoot into the sky to honor Independence Day.


Please keep in mind that pets are not welcomed at this event, unless they are a service animal.


The show will be cancelled in the event of rain or high winds and there is no make-up date.
