PRESS RELEASE

Following some unfortunate problems for Drum Corps International in 2018 they have revamped their policies to focus on the safety of participants.  Dan Acheson, Drum Corps International CEO,  stated that “With a renewed focus on safety, health, and wellness initiatives throughout 2019, we look forward to presenting this year’s tour that incorporates intervals of rest for performers, staff, drivers and volunteers at various times for each corps throughout the summer”.

These ‘intervals of rest’ mean tour dates have been scheduled around the Fourth of July as follows:

June 29,2019    Lawrence, MA
July 1, 2019       Lynn, MA
July 2, 2019      Clifton, NJ
July 6, 2019      Orlando, FL

Unfortunately, Drum Corps International will NOT be visiting Rhode Island in 2019 after more than 25 years!  The Bristol Fourth of July Committee is disappointed about this decision but we are hopeful for a return in 2020.

General Chairman

Memories from 2017

Welcome to the Official Bristol Fourth of July Website

We hope you will find everything you need to stay informed about our events and the celebration.  The Bristol Fourth of July Committee is a volunteer organization of about 120 people, dedicated to continuing the celebration that honors our many civil servants, military and fire personnel of our community.  We sponsor many community and fundraising events throughout the year to support the celebration, culminating with the Parade.

The official and historic Celebration, Patriotic Exercises, was established in 1785 by Rev. Henry Wight of the First Congregational Church and Veteran of the Revolutionary War.  The Celebration officially starts with Flag Day on June 14. Over the next few weeks there are free outdoor concerts at Independence Park, Orange Crate Derby races, a firefighters’ muster, Fourth of July Ball, Drum & Bugle Corps Show and many other activities and events. The Celebration concludes on July 4 with “The Military, Civic and Firemen’s Parade”, which is viewed by over 200,000 people from Rhode Island and around the world. These long lasting celebrations give Bristol its nickname, “America’s most patriotic town”.
