Tiffin to celebrate 4th of July with free concert

Fireworks, car show and more event planned

TIFFIN, Ohio – June 7, 2022 – Tiffin’s 4th of July Celebration at Hedges-Boyer Park is being planned as one of the biggest ever, with a car show, fireworks display, lots of activities and a free concert with country musician Darryl Worley. Events start at 9 a.m. with fireworks planned to start around 10 p.m.

In addition to celebrating the nation’s independence, this year’s event also celebrates Tiffin’s bicentennial. The Darryl Worley is sponsored in part through the Tiffin 200 Bicentennial Committee and the City of Tiffin.

Due to larger-than-averaged expected crowds, Hedges-Boyer Park is being closed to vehicles entering or exiting after 7:30 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to park off site and walk to the park for ease of access getting out after the fireworks display.

Schedule of events:

  • Check-in opens for the “Cruisin’ Thru the Years” car show at 9:30 a.m., with a “cruise” through the park beginning at 11 a.m. followed by an awards ceremony at 2:30 p.m. The first 50 cars that check-in on July 4 receive a free T-shirt, two lunch vouchers and a goodie bag from Destination Seneca County.

  • Park closes to vehicle traffic at 7:30 p.m.
