The City of Palm Desert will mark our nation’s independence on Tuesday, July 4, 2023 with a festive celebration highlighted by a concert and fireworks at Civic Center Park.
The evening’s events officially kick off at 7:30pm at the park’s amphitheater with a free concert of pop favorites. At 9 p.m. the sky will light up with a spectacular 20-minute-long fireworks display synchronized to patriotic-themed songs simulcast on two local radio stations (to be announced).
A variety of food trucks and vendors will be on hand with tasty treats and cool beverages. Attendees may also bring picnic dinners, but alcoholic beverages, smoking, and portable barbeques are prohibited. Everyone is encouraged to bring blankets and chairs to enjoy the show, and a flashlight for safely exiting the park.
To protect public safety during the holiday celebration in the busy park, golf carts will not be allowed to operate inside park grounds on July 4. Private fireworks are illegal in Civic Center Park and throughout Palm Desert. The dog parks at Civic Center Park will also be closed that day because they lay within the pyrotechnics safety zone.
Civic Center Park is located at 73510 Fred Waring Drive (at the corner of San Pablo Avenue). Parking will be allowed at the park until the lots are full, usually by 5:30 – 6 p.m. Access to the park is from Fred Waring Drive.
For the comfort and convenience of attendees, free, air-conditioned shuttle service will be provided between The Gardens on El Paseo and the park, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. The Gardens is located at the corner of El Paseo and San Pablo Avenue.
