COVID-19 UPDATE: The health and safety of Fort Davis residents and visitors is our highest priority!

The Chamber of Commerce board of directors made the tough decision to reduce the 2020 Coolest 4th of July festivities. Booths and the dance have been cancelled for 2020 but the annual fireworks show will go on as planned on Friday July 3rd after dark at the Jeff Davis County park. The decision was made to protect the residents and tourists in Fort Davis.
