2020 4th of July Schedule of Events

The Brainerd Lakes Area will be celebrating the Fourth of July, but it may look a little different than previous years due to the COVID-19 disruption. Please double check all event details before making travel plans for an event. Many annual events have been cancelled or rescheduled for the fall.

Brainerd Lakes Area 4th of July Celebration
The American Celebration - Brainerd/Baxter, MN: Minnesota's 4th of July Capital

July 4, 2020

Due to the ongoing limitations on gathering sizes as well as the construction at the Brainerd High School site, the availability to watch the fireworks from the hill and the lower site will not be available to us this year. Community Action will be shooting this year’s fireworks off from a slightly different location. If you have traditionally viewed them from locations other than the High School “bowl” you will have no problem seeing them again this year. Start time 10:15pm on the evening of the 4th.
