Fireworks, Music, Refreshment and Family Fun at the
Tullahoma Independence Day Regional Celebration

Call for Vendors and Sponsors

The City of Tullahoma is celebrating America’s 242nd birthday this year with a free family festival. The City is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for vendors and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Gates open at Noon on Tuesday, July 3rd. Frazier-McEwen Park and Grider Stadium will be filled with free music, games, food trucks, kids zone, and of course, fireworks that evening. 

Leading up to the fireworks show, the music features three bands: Chase Clanton and the Vintage Vibes; Vinyl Radio, seventies and eighties music; and Sixwire, aka Small Time Rock Stars. If you've been to a Nashville Predators game, you may have enjoyed this band. The band's story is pure Nashville. They met while touring with Lee Greenwood and have gone on to successful careers with other artists and their own band, Sixwire.

The fireworks will be presented by a national pyrotechnics company that has presented shows around the world, including in Nashville, the Washington Mall and New York City. This will be the largest fireworks show in the area. And this year there will be more close up fireworks and larger 8-inch mortars added to the show. “Be sure to find a spot on the baseball field,” said Director of Parks and Recreation, Kurt Glick. “Visitors will be the best experience when they enjoy the show from inside Grider Stadium.”

Vendor space is available for businesses for $100, food vendors for $70 and arts/crafts for $35. This is a Regional Independence day event. Tullahoma wants to invite the region to experience a great day of fun and an evening of amazing fireworks. We are also inviting anyone who is interested to reserve a booth to showcase their business, food or art. The application deadline is June 25. For details, contact Winston Brooks at 931-247-1574 or complete the form at http://www.tullahomatn.gov/fireworks and mail it to Tullahoma Fireworks, PO Box 807, Tullahoma, TN 37388.

If an organization would like to have a presence at the celebration and be a sponsor, please contact Mayor Lane Curlee at 581-0360 or mayor@tullahomatn.gov.   There are sponsorship levels ranging from $250 to $5,000. 

 “We are still accepting sponsors, so please consider this patriotic regional Independence Day celebration,” said Mayor Curlee.

“There are so many fun activities planned for this event that we are expecting to draw thousands of people from the surrounding communities. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen want to invite our neighboring communities to come to the park and celebrate our independence,” added Curlee.
