The Best Ways to Celebrate Fourth of July in SoCal

Still got no plans for the Fourth of July? Here's a list of thrilling celebrations around Los Angeles, Orange County, and Santa Monica.


Rose Bowl Stadium's Annual AmericaFest 

AmericaFest is a week-long celebration that kicks off on the Fourth of July and culminates on July 9 with the Palomino Festival. Rose Bowl boasts grander festivities this year because it coincides with its centennial anniversary. Expect fun-filled, family-friendly activities during the daytime and the much-awaited fireworks display in the evening. 

Cinespia Cemetery Screenings

Make the most of the summer season by catching movies outdoor at Hollywood Forever until the end of the month. Then, spend the Fourth of July watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off on a picnic blanket with your favorite people and refreshments. Finally, cap off the night with a breathtaking fireworks finale.

Fireworks Spectacular with Steve Martin and Martin Short 

Celebrate Independence Day with a smile on your face. Watch comedy stars from Hulu's "Only Murders in the Building" in their epic performance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Steep Canyon Rangers. Catch their shows on July 2 to 4 at 7:30 PM at the Hollywood Bowl.

Watch Fireworks by the Ocean at Marina Del Ray

Do you know what's better than a free fireworks display? A free fireworks display over the ocean. Witness this year's epic Fourth of July fireworks show at Marina Del Ray beach. It typically starts at 9 PM and is absolutely free. You have to get there early to secure a parking slot and an excellent spot to lay down your beach blanket.


Brea Country Fair

Join Brea County's fun-filled Independence day festivities, which kick off at 9:00 in the morning. Catch the cute children's parade, puppy parade, and live entertainment while sampling the sumptuous food truck offerings and shopping merchandise booths.
