The City of Lexington Parks and Recreation department organizes multiple special events throughout the year and two annual festivals: the Multicultural Festival and the Fantastic 4th Celebration. Both festivals involve hundreds of volunteers and sponsors and draw thousands of attendees from Lexington and beyond.
Fantastic 4th Celebration - July 4
People travel from all over the region to attend the Fantastic 4th Celebration at the Davidson County Fairgrounds. Why not make it part of your family "4th" tradition? Admission is FREE, and there is plenty to do before watching the patriotic display of fireworks. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, and listen to live music while watching the kids play on the variety of fun rides. There is always plenty of food available to purchase as well.
**Please note: Alcohol, pets, tobacco, and tailgating are prohibited. Outside food and drink are permitted**
