If there’s any day in this country to celebrate the differences that make us unique parts of a cultural melting pot, it’s the Fourth of July, right? Austin’s Coffee’s I-4 Fest brings a healthy dose of diversity to its lineup this year, with genres like ska (Jahnopa), soul (Eugene Snowden) and garage rock (The Woolly Bushmen) crossing paths with hip-hop (Purple Kloud, E-Turn), country (The Bloody Jug Band) and punk (Sacred Owls). Between sets from more than 20 local acts, you can check out vendors selling art, jewelry, soap and more. There’s even live glass blowing from Strawberry Glass. As always, burgers and dogs of the vegan and non-vegan variety are for sale, along with beer and – duh – coffee. If you’re broke, just wait till the Woolly Bushmen play, as Lagunitas will be passing out free beer during their set. Now that the annual SuiSlide at Lake Formosa is no more, expect the Austin’s Coffee back lot to be packed for the 10th anniversary edition of this local tradition, so plan ahead and carpool. It’s the American thing to do. 

Noon Saturday, July 4 | Austin’s Coffee, 929 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park | 407-975-3364 | austinscoffee.com | $7
