Fun 4th of July Events in Minnesota

Still no plans for the 4th? Here are a few fun events in the Twin Cities, and a great location for fireworks!


The 4th of July marks the anniversary of the day in which the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England all the way back in 1776. This eventually led to the formation of the great United States. 238 years later, we are still celebrating this day and family, friends and the communities around us are truly what this day is all about. Minnesota, and the Twin Cities in specific, have some fabulous events to celebrate the 4th of July!

1. Taste of Minnesota
Date: July 3-6, 2014

The Taste of Minnesota usually takes place on Harriet Island, but due to our large amount of rain, the event has been relocated to Carver County Fairgrounds. The new location address is 501 West 3rd Street in Waconia, Minnesota, just off of Highway 5. The Taste of Minnesota is one of the largest Minnesota celebrations out there. Some of the entertainment this year includes: 92KQRS, 93X, 102.9, fireworks every night starting at 10:20 pm, and many different exhibits. Some fun food and beverage vendors include: Kemps Ice Cream, Maui Wowi, El Burrito Mercado, Granite City and many more! For more information on the Taste of Minnesota, visit their webpage at:

2. Red, White & Boom
Date: July 3-6, 2014

This is a two-day celebration hosted by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. This event is held annually and attracts over 60,000 people. There are plenty of activities, live music and great food. The fireworks are some of the best in the state. Visit their FB page for more updates and information:
