Fourth of July Listening Party
July 4, 2020 @ 9:00 pmFree
Celebrate our nation’s independence and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime shared experience by joining in a community-wide patriotic listening party on Saturday, July 4, starting at 9 p.m.
Palm Desert is a community that looks forward to celebrating Independence Day together every year. Faced with a prohibition on large gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Palm Desert canceled its biggest event of the year, the traditional 4th of July fireworks display and concert at Civic Center Park.
This year’s unique alternative celebration encourages everyone in Palm Desert to step outside, tune in and turn up their radios or other devices as two local radio stations – 98.5 the Bull and U 92.7 – play a selection of favorite patriotic tunes in synchronized stereo. The goal of this patriotic community-wide outdoor party is to let music and freedom ring out under the stars for all to hear.
It’s even better if we celebrate separately, together! Share your 4th of July photos and listening party experiences on social media using the hashtag #UnitePalmDesert. The listening party is part of Unite Palm Desert, a campaign created to support and rally Palm Desert residents and businesses through the pandemic and beyond.
The City of Palm Desert has teamed up with local restaurants to bring you special 4th of July “picnic baskets” to enjoy while you celebrate Independence Day. Participating restaurants include California FISH GRILL, Fresh Agave Mexican Bar & Grill, Haus of Pizza, Karen’s Cafe, Keedy’s Fountain & Grill, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Which Wich, and Wilma & Frieda’s Cafe. When you support our local restaurants, you help us #UnitePalmDesert!
