Mission Statement

The Eastport 4th of July Committee is an incorporated non-profit organization which promotes a spirit of patriotism through an annual Independence Day celebration in Eastport, Maine.

The Committee is organized and operated by volunteers. No committee member is paid.

Each year, this event is held July 1st through 4th in conjunction with "Old Home Week". Thousands of visitors, alumni of Shead High School, and former "Eastporters" come to this beautiful island city to celebrate our nations birthday, reminice with old friends and have lots of fun!

There is something for everyone to enjoy while in Eastport for the 4th - free outdoor entertainment, contests and games, beauty pageants, an antique car show, arts & crafts, parades and our Grand Fireworks Display.

Funding for these activites is raised through private and business donations, vendor fees, and a voluntary road toll. An amazing amount of volunteers all blend together each year to successfully orchestrate the largest Independence Day celebration in the State of Maine.
