Fourth of July Family Fun in Green Country!

Check out these family-friendly fireworks, festivals and more to celebrate our independence.

There are so many ways to enjoy the Fourth of July throughout the Tulsa area. From parades to grand finales, we’ve got your Independence Day covered in our Fourth of July family fun in Green Country listing:


  • When: July 3, 7-10 p.m. (Gates open at 7 p.m.; Fireworks begin at 9:45 p.m.)
  • Where: Bentley Park Sports Complex, 8505 E. 148th St. S., Bixby

The Bixby Freedom Celebration is the largest free public fireworks extravaganza in this area.  For the past five years, The Bridge Church has presented this fun-packed family event to the community. Once again, a spectacular firework show is on tap for July 3, 2020.

Changes for Bixby Freedom Celebration 2020

Following suggested regulations, there are a few changes we have had to make. The fireworks will be launched from the NW corner of Bentley Park at 9:45pm (same as last year). However, there will be no kids zone, stage program, or firefighter challenge.

The fireworks show will be as spectacular as ever and can be seen for miles. You are welcome to watch the show with your family and friends in and around the park, from afar, or stay in your car – whatever you are comfortable with! Follow us on Facebook for up-to-the-minute details.

If allowed, we will have a few Food trucks.

*No personal tents, shelters or fireworks.
