RSVP: Independence Night

Sorry, but this event has sold out. Thank you for supporting Tryon Palace.  

Start a new family tradition this Fourth of July with food, fun, live music, and fireworks at Tryon Palace’s North Carolina History Center. Located on New Bern’s picturesque Trent River, the inaugural “Independence Night” celebrates the Fourth of July with live music from Billy Holton and the Soul Shakers, a buffet of tasty hot dogs and hamburgers, ice cream, face painting, and more. The event reaches its grand finale with the best waterfront view in town of the fireworks launched by the City of New Bern.

Parking at the North Carolina History Center and Eden Street Parking Lot is $5 for each vehicle and available on a first- come, first-served basis. To purchase your parking pass in advance, call 252-639-3524.

Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs, but no pets or coolers are permitted.
