4th of July in Oxford - List of Events!

A glorious holiday spent in Oxford, where you’re not likely to see a lot of students, but most definitely the locals is the July 4th holiday!

I might be a little biased, because the Fourth is my favorite holiday. I grew up with it ingrained in my blood and about 10 years ago, I set off on a mission to save the 4th of July in Oxford.

Thankfully I took this project from being in the red, to the black in the matter of one-year, but continued to run it for three years before I decided (as any leader should) it was time to pass the torch and let it grow with the perspective of other leaders.

So, the 4thof July comprehensive events list can be found by visiting

But you can plan for the Str

eet Dance on the Square from 7-9pm on the eve of the Fourth. Then wake up on the 4ht of our LOU Freedom Run and 5k, benefitting Mississippi Critterz.
