Celebrating Fourth of July 2022 on Long Island

Parades, fireworks, patriotic tunes: The East End of Long Island celebrates the Fourth of July in style. Enjoying our boutique accommodations here at The Menhaden, you’ll have plenty of options for nearby festivities.

While all the details for this year’s holiday aren’t yet available, typical Fourth of July events in our part of Long Island include the Greenport Carnival presented by the Greenport Fireman’s Department, with rides, games, and eye-popping fireworks part of the proceedings. The past couple of years, New Suffolk Beach has marked the Fourth with a New Suffolk Boat Parade, serving up plenty of nearshore pageantry.

Meanwhile, Greenport’s Dances in the Dark free concert series, held in Mitchell Park, is kicking off for the summer season on the Fourth of July. A performance by The Revelry will get underway at 7:30 PM.

Independence Day weekend is also a great excuse for visiting some of the local lavender farms, blooming away resplendently this time of year. Consider the fields over at Lavender by the Bay’s East Marion location, open Fridays through Sundays from 10 AM to 5 PM, or take in the Fourth of July lavender-picking and photo ops underway at Garden of Eve Farm.

Summer Activities on a Menhaden Getaway in Greenport Village

Take a sailing charter or sunset cruise, hop your way between area wineries and breweries, enjoy an afternoon’s bike ride, or tour the numerous well-stocked farm stands in our neck of the woods, from 8 Hands Farm to Breeze Hill Farm Preserve.
