Happy Birthday America And Wilson Fairchild Presents A Virtual 4th Of July Celebration on Facebook Live

June 11, Staunton, Virginia – Happy Birthday America will present a virtual event, taking place on their Facebook Page live on July 4th and featuring an acoustic concert by Wilson Fairchild.

Happy Birthday America is proud to bring a virtual 4th of July celebration to Facebook Live for the first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this year the announcement was made that the Happy Birthday America celebration was cancelled due to concerns over the pandemic.

“Our all-volunteer committee was saddened when it became apparent this spring that we would not be able to have our traditional celebration at Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton. COVID-19 did not, however, prevent our creative team from brainstorming an alternative event for this 4th of July to provide a patriotic, family-friendly, and fun occasion for our community. We anxiously look forward to returning to our customary location at Gypsy Hill Park in 2021.” ---Jeff Ishee, President HBA

“There is just no way that we could not celebrate all that the 4th of July stands for and what it means to this community. This event has been happening in Staunton since 1970 and it's still going to happen this year!" ----Langdon Reid

“We've all had to readjust this year in so many ways, and this year's event will be a little different as we come to everyone online instead of in-person. And we are so looking forward to playing music, interacting, taking requests and celebrating with everyone, everywhere!" ---Wil Reid.

This acoustic concert will feature Wilson Fairchild at an undisclosed location in Staunton and be moderated by Scott Jackson.The event will last 2 hours and Wilson Fairchild will be taking requests and questions from the audience. The virtual 4th of July celebration will end with a live stream of fireworks from our nation’s capital. Details to follow.
