Many of America’s Fourth of July customs have not changed since the country’s earliest celebrations. But many families and communities across the nation have developed their own annual traditions. On this page we invite you to share your favorite July Fourth memories.
A Capitol Fourth has had the pleasure of welcoming a wide array of talented and award-winning performers to participate in our national Independence Day celebration. Over the years, many have taken the time to share with us what July Fourth means to them. Here’s just a small sample of what they shared:
“To be in our nation’s capital, celebrating our birthday collectively – red states, blue states, everybody together – was too good an opportunity to pass up. Hosting A Capitol Fourth enables me to celebrate two things I’m a big fan of: America and PBS!”-- Tom Bergeron
“Fourth of July always brings back memories of summers at the lake and being with family. Of course, it’s our Independence Day and it’s amazing to live in a country where we celebrate our freedom and those who fought so hard for it!"-- Jordin Sparks
