The Ridgewood Fourth of July Celebration Committee announces their 2018 celebration theme as “Rockin’ Ridgewood: Celebrating All-American Music.”

The 2018 theme aims to celebrate the impact of music on American culture throughout history and highlight the talents of many performers from our community.
