Central Fourth Fest

501 W 2nd St
Owensboro, KY 42301


Central Pennsylvania July 4, Inc. is a non-profit organization comprised of a team of volunteers and sponsors dedicated to celebrating America’s independence with a day of family fun and the best all-volunteer fireworks display in the nation. Volunteers are dedicated to work year-round and organize what has traditionally been a patriotic, family oriented event designed to serve local businesses and residents of Central Pennsylvania.


Since 1927, there has been a July 4th celebration here in Centre County and we want to make sure there is one each and every year. Last year, people witnessed what the Travel Channel has called “one of the best fireworks displays in the world”. And, a celebration like this only happens with a huge commitment of time, effort, and money.

The Central PA 4th Fest is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation with an all volunteer board and staff. With overall costs exceeding $200,000 we fund this through generous corporate and individual contributions. Please consider being a part of this star-spangled event.
