Learn about all the 4th of July fireworks and celebrations in the Charlotte area.
This summer you will have (at least) two chances to enjoy a concert by the Charlotte Symphony, followed by a fireworks display. This is one of Charlotte’s most popular 4th of July traditions.
Here are the performances we know about so far. The performance at Truist Field, of course, will be in the heart of Charlotte, and you’ll get to see the fireworks against the backdrop of the Charlotte skyline. But if the $25/person price tag is too high, there will also be a FREE concert, followed by fireworks, in Kannapolis. If we learn about more, we’ll add them.
