The Fourth of July looks vastly different in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and several annual celebrations have been canceled in the DMV. However, several organizations have planned Independence Day events, and many of them are virtual.

ABC7 will continue to update this list as it learns about more events. 


President Trump's 2020 Salute to America will go on as planned, although D.C. Mayor Bowser has said, "We do not think that this is keeping with the best CDC and department of health guidance."

The celebration will include flyovers from the Navy Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds, and over 10,000 fireworks will be set off at 9:07 p.m.
