July 4th Events

Lake Norman fireworks, celebrations, & Independence Day parades

Are you ready for America's favorite holiday? Here are some exciting celebrations going on around Lake Norman and the surrounding area. There are no public firework displays on Lake Norman; however, you can catch fireworks from every direction along with the numerous lights from the boats across the water - certainly a spectacle to see. There are a couple private clubs on the lake where the public can view their annual firework celebrations from the water which include the Peninsula Club and Trump National Golf Course. Please note: their annual member-only displays have not been confirmed for 2022.  Be cautious on the lake at night, check your lights to be sure they are in working condition, and drive slow as this is one of the busiest nights on the water.
