Since 1976, Celebrate America's Independence with your family and friends at Tulsa's annual July 4th celebration. Tulsa's much-anticipated FreedomFest includes endless entertainment, a variety of activities and tasty concessions. A Tulsa tradition since 1976, FreedomFest is known for featuring one of Oklahoma's largest free fireworks displays and live music on three entertainment locations along the Arkansas River. Join the crowds at Tulsa's River Parks and line the banks of the Arkansas River with lawn chairs and picnic baskets and wait for the show start. Arrive early to Tulsa FreedomFest to enjoy inflatables for the kids, face painting, beverage and food vendors, old- fashioned family picnics and a bicycle parade. Past activity epicenters include River West Festival Park, Veterans Park and Elwood's Cafe. At nightfall, turn your gaze skyward and be amazed as hundreds of fireworks choreographed to patriotic music are launched from the 21st Street Bridge.
