July Fourth is one of those quintessential family holidays with food, fun, and fireworks! Your family will be all smiles this year when you take the action to Stowe, Vermont at one of our fine Stowe vacation rentals. When in Stowe, Vermont things to do for the whole family for an Independence Day that’s a notch above the rest, are endless.

Fun on the 4th of July in Stowe VT

Stowe is much more than excellent skiing. In fact, its warmer off-season months are just as much fun as the winter wonderland it becomes. There’s plenty of area hiking for even the most seasoned traveler to enjoy, and with trails for every skill level all the kids can come along.

Stowe is also home to an all-day “Old-fashioned Fourth of July” festival, starting with a large parade that winds through Main Street, chock full of traditional parade floats that your kids will love. This feeds into a celebratory party, featuring a lot of love for classic small-town America and all of its special quirks. Get your face painted while enjoying some live music, or get a goofy caricature done of yourself to frame for your den at home!

Of course, there’s plenty to eat, with freshly-grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, and those classic goodies like apple pie, just like mom used to make. You can spend hours exploring the arts and crafts booths or watching street performers work their magic. You may not be ready to run a full marathon by the end of the festival, but what about the “World’s Shortest Marathon” at a whopping 1.7 miles? Take part in this fun run, and then run over to the Mayo Events Field!

This popular public park in Stowe is where the night’s festivities wind down, and where even more food and games await the whole family. Be sure to bring a blanket or chairs to cop your spot on the grass well before the fireworks display occurs after sunset. The view of the spectacular firework show over gentle rolling hills just can’t be beat, topping off an unforgettable 4th of July in Stowe VT!

At the end of the night, you’ll be happy to have one of our lovely rental properties to go home to, with their well-planned features, convenient amenities, and enough room for even the largest of groups.
