4th of July in Tucson

UPDATED 2017


There are dozens of options for the Fourth, including the 21st annual “A” Mountain Fireworks Celebration starting at 7 p.m. You’ll find food vendors whipping up hot dogs, ice creams and other American favorites with a 9:15 fireworks show set to a patriotic soundtrack. Head to the Tucson Convention Center at 260 S. Church Ave. for the festivities.

At Kino Sports Complex, enjoy a precursor to the big day with the Diamonds in the Sky celebration at 7 p.m. An AA baseball team showdown is the perfect way to celebrate the holiday with concession stands offering half-priced items and a Kid Zone with carnival games and face painting. Tickets are on sale at www.kinosportscomplex.com.

Get the Party Started

The annual celebration at the Hilton El Conquistador Resort is where you’ll find a parking lot full of food trucks, live music and kid-friendly entertainment. Enjoy the best music of the 80s and a 9 p.m. fireworks display like no other. There’s also the Red, White and Boom! show from 6 – 10 p.m. at Sahuarita Lake Park, where family-friendly fun includes a food truck rally and big ‘works show.

The American Independence at Old Tucson is a favorite, three-day long event with free admission for kids. Join this event for the flag ceremony, special music presentation, pie-eating contests, beer tastings and the best food in town like smoked BBQ and brats. The parade kicks off the morning with fireworks sending you off with a bang.


2016
Tourists flock to Arizona year-round to check out the natural light show, thanks to the lack of pollution and generous stargazing opportunities, but the Fourth of July is when Tucson really sparkles. Head to the “A” Mountain Downtown fireworks display where you’ll find one of the biggest shows in town. It starts at 9pm with live entertainment, events and food vendors at the Tucson Convention Center. It’s free and family-friendly!

The downtown El Mercado San Agustin Public Market is open weekends for your farmers market pleasure, but hosts special vendors, dancing and live music on July 4. Catch the Cochise County All-Stars perform at 6pm followed by the Grupo Coatlicue dancers. Food trucks will be on site and DJ Chairez performs while the “A” Mountain fireworks go off nearby.

Let Freedom Ring

A tradition for many is Old Tucson’s All-American Holiday weekend, where there’s fun and food for families and university students. Here, you’ll find pie eating contests, can help raise the flag, and there’s a petting zoo for little ones. All tickets are under $20. Otherwise, you can check out the Saturdaze Dance Party at the Hotel Congress after the fireworks show. It’s hosted by DJ Bob Felix and Sid the Kid, starting at 10pm with free admission for those under 21.

Live music from the Rillito River Band is at Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort, and the annual 5k Freedom Run for the US Air Force Rescue Heroes kicks off in the morning at Golf Links Sports Complex Ramada. Where will you be celebrating?
