Fremont | Watermelon Seed Spitting & Tug Of War 4th of July | 2016Go back in time, all the way to the 1900s, at Ardenwood Farm’s fun-filled, family festival celebrating America’s 240th birthday from 10 am to 4 pm on July 4, 2016.

Celebrate with rousing patriotic music on the lawn and enjoy fiddle music in the farmyard. There will be games, contests, and races for everyone all day long. Test your skill at nail-driving, egg tossing, and watermelon seed spitting, or join a bucket brigade and tug-of-war contest.

Bring a picnic and spend the day the old-fashioned way.

Fee: $10/adults, $8/seniors (62+), $5/children (4-17), under 4 years free.

Ardenwood Historic Farm was originally owned by the George & Clara Patterson family from the 1850s. It was turned over to the city of Fremont in 1978, and the East Bay Regional Park District has operated the property as a fully functioning, turn-of-the-last-century farm since 1985. A visit here is a journey back to the time of the 1850s Patterson Ranch–a prosperous, 19th-century country estate with a beautiful Victorian mansion and elaborate Victorian Gardens.
