Red, white and blue plus you! It’s Harrisonburg’s quintessential 4th of July celebration in downtown Harrisonburg. The festival is packed full of great food, music and entertainment, including a 5K that attracts over 1,000 participants, kids activities, an art market, craft beer garden, and fireworks finale.

The Friendly City Fortune 2018 is back for a 2nd year and will kick off the festivities at 1pm. We’ll be giving away $250,000 in cash and prizes – one prize every five minutes for four hours (1-5pm). Plan to get your tickets when they go on sale in early April, then join in on the fun with thousands of your family, friends and neighbors while you wait for your winning number to be called!
