Amherst Leisure Services presents the 4th of July Celebration, at UMass Amherst!
Please join us on the Fairgrounds behind McGuirk Stadium as we celebrate Independence Day with food, music, and live entertainment. Compete in contests such as the Atkins Farms Pie eating contest and Potato Sack Race. Play family-friendly games such as Giant Twister and red white and blue Body Marbling. Enjoy popular carnival snacks and refreshments, Hot Air Balloon rides, and a kid’s carnival for all ages.
Live music will fill the fairgrounds in the evening. Local bands such as Bomba de Aqui and Beast Mode will perform sets and then a performance from the Amherst Community Band will segue into the fireworks show. Come for the day’s entertaining festivities and stay for the night’s awe-inspiring fireworks. We hope you will be able to join us at this year’s festival!
Buses will be operating on 3 distinct routes to the Fairgrounds.
Notice: No Smoking, Alcohol, and Glass is allowed on the fair groun
