Black Hills 4th of July Celebrations

July 4 - July 5


Almost every town in the Black Hills has a parade and/or fireworks. Our small towns are proud to display their love of our country, each in its own distinctive way. Old West shootouts, cook-offs, car show ‘n shines, great music, picnics, ice cream socials, farmers markets, re-enactors, arts and crafts vendors. They fit perfectly with the endless beauty, six national parks and monuments, and world-class access to abundant wildlife that the Black Hills and Badlands boasts year-round and that make the region beloved by so many.
