Thanks to You, It Happens!

Although many people in Harford County think that the traditional July 4 festivities in Bel Air "just happen" or are a function of local government, actually everything is run by an independent, not-for-profit committee: the Bel air Independence Day Committee, Inc. The Committee not only organizes and runs all the events in Bel Air on July 4th but it also raises the money it takes to bring the whole day together and celebrate our glorious holiday in fitting style.

Fortunately, the Committee doesn't go it alone. Each year, dozens - hundreds - of local businesses, organizations, clubs and individuals lend invaluable support to the Bel Air Independence Day festivities by contributing to the Committee.

As a result of the generosity of these and many other local businesses, on every July 4th in Bel Air, about 2,500 adults and children experience the daytime events; over 3,000 participants march in the parade, which is seen by (usually) about 40,000 spectators; and up to 75,000 people view the fireworks. It's a good bang for the buck (so to speak!).

This year, we hope you or your business join hundreds of your friends and local businesses and become a patron of Bel Air's July 4th celebration! To find out how, please call 410-879-4245 and leave a message about your interest, or download the following document, which gives you all the needed information on how you can support the 4th of July in Bel Air: Sponsorship Forms (PDF Format).

The Bel Air Independence Day Committee, Inc., appreciates the generous contributions of our patrons. Their gifts underwrite many of the expenses of the various activities!

Here is a list of our sponsors for the recent years:
