Whitewater's Fourth of July Festival is all about celebrating our Freedom and Independence for our families, friends and community. We have a strong and generous community that makes this celebration possible. Thank you to everyone for your support!

Bring your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers for an exciting and enjoyable day by the lake. We have many scheduled events for your entertainment and plenty of great food and music.



An impressive Fireworks show launched rain or shine over the lakebed of Cravath Lake. Thank you Coburn Company, Inc., DLK Enterprises, and City of Whitewater for continuing to make fireworks possible! 2024 fireworks will be launched at 10 pm on July 4th and 6th!
