The Sharon Independence Day celebration is funded entirely by your donations. We receive no financial support from the Town of Sharon. 

Dear Friends:

The Sharon Independence Day Celebration is almost underway and we need your support! The festivities are completely funded by your donations. It is through your generosity that we can provide a quality Independence Day Celebration for our community.

We thank those who have donated in prior years, and ask those who have not donated in the past to reconsider. The quality of the fireworks, entertainment, and activities are fully dependent on your donations. Please consider making a donation as soon as possible.  This does not preclude you from making an additional donation on July 3rd or at another time should you determine that you are then able to contribute more. Donations from area businesses are also needed and requested.

We are proud that Sharon continues to hold an Independence Day celebration every year, maintaining a tradition that is over fifty years old. Our celebration helps our community come together around Lake Massapoag to celebrate the birth of our country, and is reflection of the spirit that makes Sharon such a special place to live.

Activities will include the carriage and bike parade, live musical entertainment, train rides, community oriented booths, and fireworks.
The size of our fireworks display depends on the amount of money we raise. Please send your donation via the instructions below. Thank you for your consideration!

We are currently seeking volunteers in all capacities (ongoing and/or July 3rd only) to assist with the scheduled events.  Please email, or call (774) 300-9139 for more information.

Please make a donation in one of three ways:

1) Place a donation in our donation buckets on July 3. Donation buckets will be located at the main entrance on Beach Street as well as the secondary entrance on Gunhouse Street.

2) By mail, send a check payable to "Friends of the Fourth" to:
Sharon Friends of the Fourth
266 Massapoag Ave
Sharon, MA 02067

3) Donate online using PayPal - it is fast, secure, and easy. You can print out a receipt or have it e-mailed to you. The PayPal service allows anyone to donate any way they prefer, using a credit card or a bank account, without sharing any financial information with the Sharon Fourth of July Committee.

If you are a corporation, we can really use your donation, and we would like to send you a personalized donation request letter. Please contact for a corporate application and to answer any questions. Considering that over ten thousand people typically attend the celebration, it’s a great way to help our community and promote your business. 

Thank you to our 2017 corporate sponsors:   Dunkin' Donuts, Everwood Day Camp, and Herb Chambers Lexus!
