The GTA Online Independence Day event starts, unsurprisingly, around the Fourth of July each year. The bonuses and discounts are usually available for a week or so afterwards, which means you have the best part of seven days to collect any promo items and rack up some extra GTA$ to boost your virtual bank account. In 2021, the GTA Online Independence Day event runs from July 1 through July 7.
