The Needham Exchange Club has provided many years of community service to the Town with its signature gift, the Fourth of July Celebration. This event, beginning many years ago as a parade in celebration of our Country’s independence, has evolved into a two day event featuring food, music and fireworks on the evening of the third and a Grand Parade on the morning of the fourth.
Festivities begin at 5:00pm on Friday, July third, with food and entertainment followed by the fireworks display at dark. The Celebration continues on Saturday, July Fourth beginning at 9:00am with the raising of our nation’s flag in the Town Common followed by the Grand Parade with a craft fair and flea market, athletic events, food and entertainment after the parade at Memorial Park.
This annual celebration is made possible through the generous financial support of Needham residents, businesses and friends. Please know that the Exchange Club receives no financial support from the Town. We raise, on our own, all of the funds necessary to put on this event, and your financial support is critical to the success of our Town-wide Fourth of July Celebration.
This event has become an important Needham tradition providing more than 60 years of memories for Needham families. If you would like to support this tradition by making a donation please click “Donate” in the "Support the 4th of July with a donation" paragraph below.
Thank you in advance for your generous financial support and please know that any contribution is greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you and your family at Memorial Park.
On behalf of the entire membership of the Needham Exchange Club, every best wish.
