Fireworks at the Fairgrounds in Dothan

This Sunday, we’ll let our flag fly. The American flag, that is! Celebrate our history and our hard-earned freedom with 2021’s Fourth of July event: Fireworks at the Fairgrounds in Dothan this Saturday, July 3rd. So, don’t forget to mark it down on your calendar!

More on the Event

We’re celebrating the Fourth of July a day early this year at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds! And the fun starts long before Fireworks at the Fairgrounds in Dothan, too. Make sure you come early, so that you can check out all festivities before the main event.

What can I do at the event?

You’ve already heard about the fireworks! Well, this event also comes with its own Dothan flair. We’re well known for our peanuts—and the event will offer free samples of boiled peanuts for all.

Other draws include:

  • Free American hand flags;
  • A farmers market;
  • Ice cream samples;
  • A car show;
  • A hot dog eating contest;
  • Free inflatables for the children to play on;
  • Music;
  • Concessions available for purchase;
  • Free watermelon slices;
  • Helicopter and antique tractor displays;
  • And more.
