4th Fest promises to be one heck of a party in State College! Join us for world-famous fireworks, the Firecracker 4k, Heroes Parade, vendors, entertainment, activities and concessions!
Central PA 4thFest is a family oriented, patriotic birthday party held July 4th on the east campus of Penn State University.
Besides the Firecracker 4K Race in the morning, Parade of Heroes, and three venues of entertainment, there’s an afternoon full of activities for young and old! Spend the day with us!
Just as the Parade of Heroes begins, the food vendors open, offering everything from Kettle Corn to sausages and sno-cones. Click here for a full list of mouth-watering food vendors. Follow that by watching a gravity-defying BMX Bike & Rollerbladers stunt show on the Founders Mall. Show your appreciation to our troops by signing a card at the Operation Thank You tent, then settle in for a stunning pyrotechnics display for a preview of the evening’s presentation!
