You’re Invited to Independence Day – Connerton Style!

Connerton is extending an invitation for Tuesday, July 3, to all who want to join in an Old-Fashioned Independence Day celebration.

The community is kicking off the biggest holiday of the summer with its fifth annual Nation Celebration. The festivities are free and take place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. If you’re looking for some good, old-fashioned fun, then gather family and friends and head to Connerton, the “Community of More,” in Land O’ Lakes.

Connerton’s annual Independence Day Celebration has become Central Pasco’s gala event for the holiday. Live music under the big top, games, local crafters, DJ, and bounce houses for kids are just a few of the activities at the celebration. Benedetto’s Ristorante Italiano is providing some of the food and drink, and is also the major sponsor for the gala Fireworks Show at 9 p.m. Food trucks with a variety of culinary options will also be present.

All ages will find something to keep them busy, whether it’s bungee jumping, climbing a rock wall, or simply relaxing and listening to live music while enjoying a beer and sampling a variety of food. Connerton is expecting a large crowd this year, so plan on coming early to set up your chairs and blankets in the outdoor amphitheater for a front row seat for the fireworks.

While you’re at Connerton, you will want to tour this beautiful “New Town” that was once again chosen as one of the Showcase Communities for the 2018 Parade of Homes by the Tampa Bay Builders Association.

Hundreds of people attended the Parade to view model homes by M/I Homes, Lennar, Inland Homes and Homes by WestBay. Many parade-goers also became Connerton homeowners, and are now enjoying the beautiful resort-style clubhouse and its many activities. In addition, residents enjoy top-rated schools, and the Arbor Square retail area. This busy shopping center is anchored by Publix Super Market, and also offers banking, restaurants, hair and nail salons, pool store, liquor store, insurance agencies, UPS store, pet grooming and a veterinarian clinic. Across the street is a Walgreens drugstore.

Connerton’s commitment to nature and conservation, with its winding trail system and preservation of trees and wetlands, has made this community a place to enjoy the camaraderie of neighborhood living with natural protected spaces for generations to come.

If this sounds like the place where you can enjoy good old-fashioned fun for the holiday, then join the party and celebrate our Nation’s Independence on Tuesday, July 3, 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. Shuttles will be available from Connerton Elementary School, so don’t worry about parking. The shuttles will take you right to the event grounds.

Connerton is located on U.S. 41, seven miles north of State Road 54, and 3 miles south of State Road 52.  For additional information, visit, or call us at (813) 996-5800.
