Celebrate Independence Day with the City of Bedford from 5 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4 at Generations Park at Boys Ranch, 2801 Forest Ridge Dr. 

Bedford 4thFest will feature free live music by The Inspiration Band, a kid’s zone, food trucks, marketplace, and a spectacular fireworks show when the sun goes down.

Admission to 4thFest is FREE. Feel free to bring lawn chairs, blankets, coolers, and non-alcoholic beverages (no glass containers are permitted).


The fireworks show will begin at 9:30 p.m. The fireworks will be shot off from Generations Park at Boys Ranch. Similar to previous years, the City will continue to shoot the fireworks 200-feet higher so residents can view them from further away. 

Please remember, private fireworks are also prohibited in the City of Bedford.
