The City of Lancaster and the City of Palmdale Host an In-Person Fireworks Event for Independence Da

In honor of Independence Day, the City of Lancaster and the City of Palmdale are excited to announce a joint Fourth of July fireworks celebration at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds starting at 5 PM on Sunday, July 4. The show is expected to last approximately 5 hours. It will showcase free entertainment, the Rural Olympic Games, and spectacular fireworks to celebrate Independence Day and the country we call home.


A limited number of grandstand seating tickets will be available. Please visit for a list of locations and events where tickets will be distributed. Seating outside of the grandstand arena is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring your own chairs and blankets to ensure you have a seat. Parking information may be found on the website.


“The City of Lancaster is excited to partner with the City of Palmdale to put on a celebratory event for our entire region,” said City of Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Our community has been eager to take advantage of the warm weather and summer activities, so there is no better way to honor our great country and City than to gather as a community for this fireworks extravaganza.” 

“This collaboration between our Cities is going to create what will be one of the largest and most spectacular fireworks shows this Valley has ever seen,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “With this display of pyrotechnical power and color filling the skies, there is absolutely no need and no excuse for anyone to waste their time and money on illegal fireworks that pose a threat to life and property.”
