For many years, the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce has organized the annual 4th of July Celebration. We collaborate with local businesses and non-profits to bring our community a family-friendly and festive day. 

The Fourth of July Celebration is one of the highlights of summer in Bar Harbor which concludes with an awesome Fireworks Show over Frenchman Bay. The Chamber helps fund the parade and the fireworks each year for Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island at a cost of $30,000. We can only do it with your help. We receive a portion of the costs from the Town of Bar Harbor, and our sponsors.

We hope that we can again depend on the generous support of the community to help cover the remaining costs. Please consider one of the levels below or an amount of your choice.

Donation levels are:
  • CADILLAC $250 & above
  • DORR $200
  • SARGENT $100
  • ACADIA $50
As in past years, we will publish a list of all donors in the local newspapers. Please indicate if you wish to remain anonymous. Contributions are not tax exempt.

Thank you very much for your continued support and being a part of this community event in celebration of our country's independence.
