Taylor Swift’s: European Tour Forces Cancellation of Annual 4th of July Bash – Look Back at Her Best Parties

Rhode Island, USA – Taylor Swift, the global pop sensation, known for her extravagant Independence Day celebrations, will not be hosting her traditional bash at her Rhode Island estate this year. Instead, Swift is currently on her European leg of the Eras Tour and will be performing in Amsterdam on July 4th. Despite the absence of this year’s event, fans can still reminisce about Swift’s past July 4th blowouts.

Swift initiated her July 4th tradition back in 2013 after purchasing her $17 million mansion in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. That year, she hosted her Red Tour dancers to commemorate America’s birthday with outdoor festivities, including volleyball, face painting, and a fun day at the beach.

The following year, Swift expanded her guest list to include celebrity friends like Lena Dunham, Emma Stone, and Jamie King at her 2014 bash, complete with a giant slip and slide and an ocean dip. Subsequent years saw the likes of Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, and Serayah joining in on the patriotic celebrations, rocking patriotic onesies and enjoying the festive atmosphere.

Swift’s iconic fourth party, featuring Tom Hiddleston in an “I Heart T.S.” tank top, solidified her Rhode Island home, the same one mentioned in her 2020 song “The Last Great American Dynasty,” as the go-to spot for Independence Day festivities. The star-studded guest list in 2016 included Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Cara Delevingne, and Ed Sheeran, among others, indulging in the summer fun.

After a brief break from hosting in 2017, coinciding with her relationship with Joe Alwyn, Swift resumed her July 4th bash in 2023, inviting friends like Selena Gomez and the Haim sisters. Last year’s celebration marked a return to the tradition after a hiatus, giving fans a glimpse of the star’s low-key girls’ weekend with empowering and kick-ass gal pals.

While fans eagerly anticipate Swift’s next 4th of July extravaganza, they will have to wait until 2025, as she will be performing in Amsterdam during this year’s holiday. Despite the pause in festivities, Swift’s past July 4th parties continue to live on in the memories of guests and fans alike.
