Join us once again as a spectacular display of fireworks echoes throughout Kenan Stadium this Independence day! Travel & Leisure Magazine ranked Chapel Hill no. 10 as America’s Best Towns for July Fourth Celebrations. This is one celebration you won’t want to miss!

This year gates open at 7 p.m. and family activities and fun are planned throughout the evening! The RadioJacks will be rocking the stadium with the latest radio hits and state of the art sound and lighting!

Radio Jacks are a fun and youthful Top 40 variety band performing the radio hits of such artists as Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Pink, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Meghan Trainor and Pharrell Williams while sprinkling in the classics by such artists as Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Earth, Wind & Fire and Prince to name a few.  With their universal appeal, Radiojacks will have audiences of all ages on the dance floor all night long! 

Another way this event becomes top ten, is through community pride and support by local community leaders who contribute as sponsors each year. Fireworks presented by Carolina Athletics, Cruisers Convenience Marketplace, Performance Subaru, Grace Church and UNC Health Care. The Watermelon Eating Contest hosted by DSI Comedy Theater. Thank you also to our Official Media Partners WCHL and and The News and Observer and our Concourse sponsor Passanantes Home Foods and VIP Supporters CHOPT, Panera Bread and Berkshire-Chapel Hill.
