Fourth of July Events, Activities & Fireworks in the Berkshires

By Berkshires Macaroni Kid June 25, 2024

What better way to celebrate the Fourth of July in the Berkshires than with annual parades, fireworks, concerts, and readings of the Declaration of Independence? Or, if you're like me, a picnic at a local lake with family where a few small firework displays can be seen, and marshmallows are roasted around a campfire later in the evening. Whatever your choice, you can find all your Berkshire County Fourth of July Happenings below. Did we miss something? Let us know at
