2. You Are So Lucky
Although not on July 4th weekend, the inaugural You Are So Lucky summer event is not to miss. Taking place on July 7, 8 and 9, the weekend-long festivities include dozens of artists, performers and musicians, who will take over a once abandoned, 72-room gothic mansion, located on the north edge of the city. Across acres of mansion grounds, music performances, hidden experiences and live performances of “ritual and spectacle” will take place in celebration of art. Purchase a ticket here.
