Party in the Park at Chandler’s July 4th Fireworks Spectacular
Live music, food and family fun reign over Tumbleweed Park in celebration of the nation’s independence

The City of Chandler rocks the town red, white and blue Monday, July 4, with the return of its annual July 4th Fireworks Spectacular at Tumbleweed Park. The party in the park reigns across Tumbleweed from 4-10:30 p.m. with a high energy celebration, complete with live music, food vendors and kid activities; all leading up to Chandler’s largest sky-illuminating fireworks display kicking off at 9 p.m., presented by the Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers restaurant.

Admission to the park is free, and onsite parking is available for $5 per vehicle.

No party is complete without live tunes to keep crowds grooving, and The CW6 Stage is offering six hours of nonstop musical entertainment celebrating the sounds of America. Keep an ear out for lively music by Walt Richardson, People Who Can Fly, Tridon and local DJs. The complete concert schedule is available online at

Excellent eats and sips from local food trucks and street fare vendors also are on tap for the party in the park. Taste the ever-developing flavors of the East Valley as the July 4th Fireworks Spectacular hosts an array of food vendors in the park for a delectable afternoon of dining and drinking. The 21-and-over crowd is invited to savor, sip and stroll as they enjoy adult beverages throughout the park. All food and drinks are pay-as-you-go.

Families should head to the “kid zone” for a full afternoon of interactive activities, such as face painting, balloon creations, photo booth and more. Kids and adults alike can also light the night while testing their lightsaber wielding techniques by participating in the Phoenix Lightsaber Academy. 

Tumbleweed Park, a favorite park for all sorts of outdoor fun, hosts Playtopia, sand volleyball, horseshoes and corn hole for festivalgoers to enjoy. Guest are encouraged to bring their own outside activities – kites, Frisbees, bikes, bubbles and more – as well as blankets and chairs. Personal fireworks are prohibited in the park.

Tumbleweed Park is located at 2250 S. McQueen Rd., on the southwest corner of McQueen and Germann roads. Vehicles can enter the park from Germann Road at Hamilton Street or from McQueen Road at Celebration Way.
