Fourth of July

A city-wide celebration

  • Date: -  (all day)
  • Introduction: Celebrate our nation’s independence and enjoy a once-in-a –lifetime shared experience by joining in a community-wide patriotic listening party on Saturday, July 4, starting at 9 p.m.

This safe and mostly sane celebration encourages everyone in Palm Desert to tune in and turn up their radios or other devices as two local radio stations –98.5 the Bull and U 92.7 – play a section of favorite patriotic tunes in synchronized stereo. The goals is to let music and freedom ring out under the stars for all to hear.

The City is working with select local restaurants that will offer Independence Day "picnic baskets," which holiday revelers can pre-order and enjoy at home before, during, or after the listening party.

The musical pyrotechnics that will highlight this unique event are being offered in lieu of the City’s traditional annual fireworks display and concert in Civic Center Park due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Listening party participants are encouraged to observe all public health guidelines including social distancing and face coverings if appropriate.

The listening party is part of Unite Palm Desert, a campaign created to support and rally Palm Desert residents and businesses through the pandemic and beyond.
