Independence Celebration June 24th

The annual Fort Benning Independence Celebration will be held this year on June 24th at York Field! Come out and join in on the fun, activities, food, and music. The event starts at 3pm, and will last until the fireworks are finishing lighting up the sky. Come pay tribute to the ones who allowed us to be free. Kristian Bush will be the headliner, as well as other local acts such as, Donovan Keith & The Funky Feat, and the MCoE Band.

Guest with military ID and the public is invited to this free event. Bring your lawn chairs, cabanas, and something to keep you cool. This event is hosted by the Fort Benning MWR, and food and more will be available for purchase. Tokens can be purchased at the MWR location on post, or the day of the event. The firework display illuminates the Fort Benning sky with bright colors, as the songs that make us proud to be American’s play over the loud speakers. Watch the paratroopers jump from a helicopter, and the amazing decent with flags attached.

A schedule of events will be available starting June 9th at Get there early to grab a great spot, and enjoy what the entertainment has to offer.
