Welcome to the Spirit of America Festival

For the 48th year, the Spirit of America Festival promises to be the destination for free family fun on the 4th of July!

Originating during the height of the Vietnam War, this festival continues its mission of supporting patriotism and traditional American values.

The Spirit of America Festival combines meaning, memory and magnificence into a one hour presentation for the entire family!

This year’s event will begin at 8:15 with a 45 minute video presentation followed by the largest fireworks celebration ever seen in the city of Decatur, Alabama.  For years, the festival staff has heard the requests for the fireworks to be presented earlier in the evening.  At 9:00, the inspirational program will conclude with the Spirit of America Fireworks Display. This spectacular show will delight and dazzle as the night sky is illuminated and the embers are reflected over the beautiful Tennessee River.  The fireworks display soundtrack will be simulcast with the ClearChannel Radio (WDRM and WQRV the River)
