The great thing about Independence Day is that it’s more than just an opportunity for us to come together and celebrate as a nation. It’s a chance for us to come together on the hometown level.
We’re fortunate that in D.C. and the surrounding areas, we have some of the most active, close-knit communities you’ll find anywhere. And the Fourth of July weekend is jam-packed with fun events in towns throughout the region. Here are a few of our favorite events happening near Brookfield Residential communities.
Celebrate Independence Day at George Washington’s boyhood home. Enjoy historic re-enactors, educational programs, music, crafts, and more.

It’s an Independence Day pre-game party in Old Town Winchester. There’s something for everyone, including a beer and wine garden, a hamburger eating contest, a cornhole tournament, kids activities, fireworks and more.

Try your luck in pie-eating contests, a watermelon-eating contest and a bicycle decorating contest. It’s a day filled with fun activities for the whole family. Come early and stay for one of the largest fireworks displays in Northern Virginia, starting at 9:15pm.
