4th of July Celebrations in Durham

Its almost time for parades, fireworks, and festivals celebrating the Fourth of July. If you’re planning on being in Durham for the holiday be sure to check out some of the great festivities in the area such as the Festival for the Eno or a Durham Bulls game.

The Festival for the Eno kicks off on July 4th and will also feature events and family-friendly activities on the 7th and 8th.  This annual festival helps raise money for the preservation of Eno River and is hosted at a park right down the road from the Inn. There will be live music, a juried arts, and craft show, and water-based recreation activities. Check out our video below to get an idea of the fun everyone had at last year’s festival. If you stay with us for two nights during the festival we will provide two complimentary tickets to the Festival, just ask your innkeeper about the Festival for the Eno special.

If you’re looking for some all-American fun this 4th of July catch a Durham Bulls game that will be followed by a fantastic fireworks display. Make a festive night out on the Fourth by visiting some of the great restaurants right next to the ballpark in the American Tobacco Historic District or nearby in Brightleaf Square
