Independence Day Celebration 2019

Fourth of July Fireworks Show in Southern Granville County

The excitement of a fireworks show is always one of the highlights of summer, and the City of Creedmoor and Town of Butner, along with support from Granville County, Town of Stem, and City of Oxford, are pleased to once again host a fireworks display for the annual Fourth of July Celebration.

This year’s show will be on Wednesday, July 3 at Lake Holt (1200 Lake Holt Road, Butner) just off of Old NC 75, with gates opening at 6:00 p.m. Parking and security will be organized by officers of Butner Public Safety, Creedmoor and Oxford Police Departments, Granville County Sheriff’s Department, Creedmoor and Stem Fire Departments, and the Junior Volunteer Fire Department. Due to safety concerns, everyone who plans to attend must be through the gates by 8:45 p.m. The fireworks show will begin at dark, and vehicles will not be able to leave until the show is over.

Fun activities planned for the evening include a DJ spinning crowd-favorite songs and concession stand offerings including: barbeque sandwiches, hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, soft drinks, and shaved ice. Please note that alcoholic beverages and open flames will not be permitted on site, and event organizers request all pets be left at home due to the loud nature of fireworks. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket, as well as a flashlight to assist them in the walk back to their car after the show. 

There is no scheduled rain date. If inclement weather prevents the show from taking place on July 3, it will be cancelled until next year. More information including maps with directions to the event location and designated parking areas will be posted on the websites of the City of Creedmoor, Town of Butner, and Granville County.
