Grand Park’s 4th of July Block Party

It’s on again!! Downtown L.A.’s largest *free* Fourth of July celebration is back!

Grand Park’s 4th of July Block Party is happening this Monday, July 4, 2022, from 4:00 – 9:30 p.m.

Grand Park, backed by The Music Center, affirms its status as the park for everyone with the return of Grand Park’s 4th of July Block Party. After a two-year hiatus during the pandemic, Grand Park will welcome thousands of Angelenos back to the highly popular in-person event with live entertainment and an unrivaled fireworks show launched from the rooftop of The Music Center’s iconic Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

Grand Park’s 4th of July Block Party returns IN-PERSON with a spectacular celebration packed with fun for the whole family. This year’s party will feature a series of interactive multi-media art works in tribute to those who have contributed to the spirit of the Grand Park experience as the Park for Everyone, and will showcase a dynamic retrospective of the last 10 years. Join us for a night that will include food, music, the return of two stages featuring DJs as well as musical performances, dancing, as well as other surprises and dazzling fireworks over Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center.
