Free Event, Open to the Public!

We never celebrate July 4th on the 4th of July, and we make no apologies. We host the annual Independence Celebration early for a variety of reasons but mostly because we know it’s important for our Soldiers to travel over the holiday to be with family and friends. You should never have to choose between our celebration and celebrating with the ones you love. You value your family; we value your priorities. Stay tuned for a 2019 date.

 

Biggest Fireworks Show in the Chattahoochee Valley!

The annual Independence Celebration is held on York and Gardner fields on Eckel Avenue, in front of McGinnis Wickam Hall. Admission is free, and this event is open to the public. Though the highlight of the annual Independence Celebration is always the finale, the largest, grandest fireworks show in the Chattahoochee Valley, you’ll also enjoy great concerts, games, exciting shows and demonstrations and more.

 

Free Fun for the Whole Family!

As always, the Silver Wings will conduct aerial demonstrations and Rangers will perform high-speed insertion and extraction operations via a rope and a helicopter, a thrilling show we call Fries & Spies. We will also offer guests the opportunity to jump from a 34’ Airborne Training Tower on Eubanks Field. This should be on your Fort Benning Bucket List. Aside from the traditional games and a great variety of food, guests will enjoy crafts and more of those crazy inflatable bounce houses than you can shake a stick at. All free!

 

Food and beverages will be available for purchase all throughout the event.
