This event is held rain or shine.

246 years ago, America stood together and declared independence from the government that had ruled avariciously over them. This declaration was only the beginning, but it was a step towards a safe, self-determined, self-governed nation. Independence Day is a celebration of the day 246 years ago when the American people united to create a place where their kin could come to relax and enjoy luxuries they never had. Call now to reserve a weekend of honoring your ancestors’ sacrifices by relaxing, spending time with your family, and savoring the liberties they achieved for you!

Celebrate at Granite Hill with a long weekend jammed-full of ghost stories, hayrides, horseshoe tournaments, patriotic tie-dying, trivia, singing and dancing with Dual FX DJ’s, a patriotic bicycle parade, crafts, and more! Celebrate our nation’s birthday with Ray Owen, national recording artist as he presents “Hats Off to America, ” an award-winning show for kids of all ages that takes a musical journey through history!
