An alternative event for July 4, 2022 is being planned by the City of Tempe. Additional information will be forthcoming.
The July 4th Tempe Town Lake Festival has become the premier Independence Day celebration in the Valley since 1952. Every year tens of thousands of guests gather in Tempe Beach Park to enjoy an evening of family-friendly fun including live entertainment, food, kid's activities, and an amazing fireworks display over Tempe Town Lake. The best thing about this event is that all net proceeds benefit local children's charities through the Kiwanis Club of Tempe! All attendees can have fun and do good by just being present.
