U.S. Embassy Virtual July 4th Reception 

Dear Fellow American Citizens in North Macedonia, 

In celebration of the 244th Anniversary of the United States of America’s Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, the U.S. Embassy has the honor to invite you to its first virtual July 4 reception.  While the coronavirus prevents us from hosting a traditional reception in person, this year we will broadcast our event across the country.  On this occasion, we commemorate not only the ideals that have inspired Americans and people around the world for more than two centuries, but we also honor the first responders, healthcare workers, and others who have helped North Macedonia in its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As a proud member of this community, we are excited to have you, other Americans in your communities, and all the citizens of North Macedonia join us for music and fireworks.  A fireworks display will be staged from the Skopje fortress at 9:00 p.m. on July 3, and will be visible across the capital.  U.S. military bands will virtually perform timeless American melodies at 8:30 p.m. on July 4, which will be broadcast on television and on our Embassy’s social media outlets.

We look forward to your participation.
