Stratton 4th of July Activities Lineup

It’s that time of year again! Break out your red, white and blue attire and light up those sparklers because it’s almost Independence Day. What better way to celebrate than in the Green Mountains with family and friends? The annual Mountain Friends and Freedom celebration features fireworks, gondola rides, live music, barbecues, games and festivities for the whole family on July 3-5.
