EVERETT, Wash. – Community members are invited to celebrate July Fourth with the City of Everett. The celebration begins at Legion Memorial Park at 3 p.m. and fireworks begin at 10 p.m.

“We’re so excited to come back together as a community to celebrate Everett’s July Fourth festival,” said Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin. “It has been a tough few years and this celebration will be a fun and inviting event for our residents and visitors alike. There will be live music, food trucks and festivities for everyone to enjoy.” 

The event will include live entertainment, a beer garden, a dozen food trucks and activities for people of all ages leading up to the Thunder on the Bay fireworks show. The fireworks show will light up the sky at 10 p.m. over Port Gardner Bay. 

“Everett puts on the best Fourth of July celebration around, in my opinion,” said Tyler Chism, the City’s placemaking manager. “What’s better than a sunny day in the park with friends, food and free entertainment? Top it off with a world-class fireworks show and it’s hard to beat.”

Public parking is not available at Legion Memorial Park on July 4. Everett Transit will offer free shuttles to and from the festival at Legion Park beginning at 3 p.m. Shuttle riders can board at Everett Community College in front of the Walt Price Fitness Center. Face masks are recommended on shuttles. Community members can also use alternative forms of transportation such as bikes, scooters or rideshare services. 

The July Fourth celebration is made possible thanks to generous local sponsors, City staff and departments, community volunteers, the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee and other community partnerships.
