Festivals & Events

Join us in Sopchoppy for an Independence Day celebration that’s fun for the whole family.

Sopchoppy’s 4th of July event is back for its 48th year! Join us for a parade, performers, and more.

Started in 1973 by Bill Stephens, the City of Sopchoppy annually comes together with volunteers to put on a 4th of July celebration for the community that can be enjoyed by all. The day will start with a bang at 10:00 in the morning as the Bill Stephens Americana Parade, named for the celebration’s founder, makes its way through downtown Sopchoppy. Make your way to Rose Street to watch the one-of-a-kind parade go by.

Join us after the parade in Myron B. Hodge City Park, right on the beautiful Sopchoppy River. Music performances will take place throughout the day, along with arts and crafts booths, food, exhibits, and activities just for kids. Entertainment includes the “Take Two” Music Duo, Rockulla, DJ Butch, the Tobacco Rd Band, and more all kicking off at 11 A.M. There’s something for everyone to enjoy. Dogs are permitted as long as they’re on a leash and owners pick up after their pet. A donation of $2.00 is requested for entry.

At sunset, the fireworks display will begin. You won’t want to miss this, as the show will be reflected in the water of the river for an exciting and unique experience. Check out exactly when the sun is expected to set here.

Mark your calendars and make your way to Sopchoppy this July 4th!
