Medford’s Annual Independence Day Fireworks – Wed. July 3rd

Medford Celebrates Foundation, Inc. (MCF) announces that ShopRite of Medford has agreed to sponsor Medford’s 2024 Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks Display as the Presenting Sponsor.

The event will be held at Medford’s Freedom Park on Wednesday, July 3rd, with a Saturday, July 6th rain date.

“The proceeds from the Presenting Sponsor go directly toward purchasing the evening’s fireworks,” said Bob Egan, President of Medford Celebrates, the volunteer, non-profit organization that produces the event every year. “Medford has always had fantastic fireworks displays to celebrate our nation’s independence and we are grateful to ShopRite of Medford for again providing the funds to continue that tradition.”

Murphy’s Fresh Markets will again serve as the Tailgate Area Sponsor and YMCA of the Pines as the Kid’s Zone sponsor. Other area businesses that have pledged sponsorships to date are Archer Law, Medford Fitness, Padden Cooper, Yale School, Columbia Bank, and Medford Mini-Storage.

Each year, well over 10,000 regional residents come to Medford to attend Medford’s Independence Day Celebration, shop local businesses and enjoy the food and beverage offerings provided by food truck vendors in Freedom Park, and watch the grand fireworks display at dusk. MCF has raised money to fund the event since 2011, mainly by soliciting local and area businesses to provide sponsorships. In return for contributions, MCF offers an advertising and promotional package, publicizing sponsors in ads placed in local publications and on the MCF website, mentioning them on our social media pages, and on signage in Freedom Park at the event.

Egan said that “the costs of presenting a free admission event of this size for thousands of South Jersey residents and visitors are substantial and extend well beyond the costs of the fireworks themselves. These costs are rapidly growing with inflation. We need additional sponsors, as well as contributions from our audiences, to be able to continue the tradition and keep the fireworks going.”

Medford Celebrates Foundation, Inc. is an all-volunteer Section 501(c)(3) non-profit entity dedicated to securing funding needed to stage Medford Township’s major events and producing Medford’s Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks Display.
