The 4th of July is a great time to visit the Roanoke Valley in Virginia's Blue Ridge. Our rich history and culture combined with our spirit of celebration make the region a wonderful place to be as we celebrate our nation's independence.

You'll have plenty of opportunities to proudly show your patriotism at events throughout the region, including the Celebrate Independence Day event at the National D-Day Memorial, Buchanan Fourth of July Parade, Independence Day Celebration at Smith Mountain Lake, Vinton 4th of July Celebration, Roanoke's Fireworks on the Fourth! and the Red, White and You Celebration at Peaks of Otter Winery.

You can also enjoy the holiday with the rides and great entertainment at the Salem Fair.
