Fourth of July Celebration


Join us for our annual Fourth of July Celebration, hosted by the Waterfront and Parks and Recreation Departments!

If you’re looking for somewhere to celebrate this Independence Day, there’ll be no better place than Santa Barbara's waterfront. A full slate of festive, fun, and family-friendly activities is planned throughout the day, including free live music and dance performances on the beach, hosted by the PARC Foundation!

The festivities will be capped off with a bang during a 20-minute fireworks display, presented by Garden State Fireworks and sponsored by the City’s Waterfront Department. Fireworks will launch from West Beach starting at approximately 9 p.m. The show will be simulcast on local radio station KjEE (92.9 FM) and live-streamed on The City thanks KjEE and KEYT for their longtime support of this community tradition.

July 5th Beach Cleanup Volunteer Opportunity
With thousands flocking to Santa Barbara beaches for Independence Day, a lot of litter can end up on the sand. This year, you have two opportunities to be part of the solution. First, make sure you pick up after yourself before you leave the beach on July 4th. Second, if you’d like to take it up a notch, volunteer to help with cleanup efforts on July 5th.

The City will partner with Santa Barbara Channelkeeper to host cleanups at nearby beaches to ensure any litter left over the holiday does not make its way to the ocean. Cleanups will take place at Leadbetter Beach and East Beach from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Gloves and buckets will be provided for all volunteers. Community members that would like to help with the cleanup efforts can register here
