A Fort George 4th of July 2021

Fort George Opens Up The Waterfront

Rockin’ 4th of July on the Riverwalk

If there’s one thing Fort George loves to do, it’s to throw a good party. So much has happened in this last year – with the addition of the new brewery space at The Waterfront and, of course, that whole pandemic thing – it’s been a struggle to contain the excitement. But this weekend, as the mandates are lifted, the party is on!

Come celebrate the 4th of July with Fort George at The Waterfront, along the riverwalk just east of the Astoria-Megler Bridge. They’ll be firing up the food truck and stocking it full of burgers and fries, and filling the tap trailer with the freshest beer around. There will be live music along the river all evening on Sunday. Plus, the Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce was kind enough to schedule the biggest fireworks display on the coast (one can only assume to honor this historic moment).

This is the first chance to hang out in The Waterfront beer garden, which is hopefully the first of many. Come check out this amazing location and stick around for live music and a front-row view of the fireworks display. Grab a pint of Fort George beer, including Beta IPA 25, the first test batch for this year’s Farmers’ Annuary. And, for those of you who have suffered through this heat dome, the weather in Astoria this weekend looks absolutely perfect. Bring a coat.

The Waterfront beer garden will be open from 3 pm to 10 pm on Saturday, July 3rd with food & drink options for the whole family. Come back Sunday, July 4th starting at 3 pm, and enjoy live music right up to the fireworks display.

Live Music – Sunday, July 4th

5:00 pm – The Hackles

7:00 pm – Bart Budwig

9:00 pm – The Sam Stoners (John Prine Tribute Band)

All ages are welcome at all times. Parking is very limited and folks are encouraged to walk to the event via the Astoria Riverwalk. Just head towards the big bridge and you can’t miss it. And as always, never a cover.

Date: Saturday & Sunday – July 3rd & 4th

Time: 3 pm to 10 pm both days

Where: The Waterfront – 70 W. Marine Drive along the Columbia River

Why: Because freedom needs to be celebrated
