There is no summer tradition we anticipate with more excitement than the Southampton Fresh Air Home’s Annual American Picnic with Fireworks by Grucci. Our 28th Annual Picnic Benefit is scheduled for Friday, July 3rd (with a rain date of Sunday July 5th) and it is the only Fourth of July fireworks family party in Southampton!

     Once again at 1030 Meadow Lane, the festivities will include exciting games for kids of all ages. We will enjoy a delicious American picnic as well as food carts with popcorn, ice cream, hot dogs, and other delights. And, of course, there is nothing quite as special as our spectacular Grucci fireworks display over Shinnecock Bay!

     The Southampton Fresh Air Home is a residential camp with a specialized recreation program adapted for physically challenged children, the majority of whom will receive scholarships to attend.  The Picnic raises over 40% of the Home’s annual program expenses. Your generosity will allow our special children to enjoy a unique and caring summer camping experience filled with laughter, love and friendship while at the same time, providing a much deserved rest for their families who care for them all year round. Please see for yourself our extraordinary program by visiting our website,

The on-line portal is now closed.  Please call the office 631-283-5847 until 3 p.m. the day of the event.  Tickets will also be sold at the door on Friday, July 3, 1030 Meadow Lane.
