Westgate Fireworks Fest

  • Westgate 6751 North Sunset Boulevard Glendale, AZ, 85305 United States

The sky will light up over Westgate Entertainment District for the fourth annual Westgate Firework Fest on Sunday, July 3 from 5 pm – 9:30 pm during the West Valley’s largest fireworks show and festival. Last year, more than 40,000 people turned out and this year promises to be even more patriotic. The free, family-friendly event also has ample, convenient and free parking that will be available at all five parking lots surrounding Westgate.

Take advantage of all-day dining and shopping deals at participating tenants and have the kids play and cool off at Fountain Park’s Splash Pad, near AMC Theatres. From 5pm until 9pm, live bands and DJs will perform on two stages. The family stage, located at Fountain Park, will have a DJ, dancing, activities for kids and giveaways. The second stage will be located at WaterDance Plaza, in front of Gila River Arena, with music performances by local bands.  With a portion of the proceeds benefitting 100 Club of Arizona, an outdoor beer garden will be setup near WaterDance Plaza with games like giant Jenga and cornhole along with enter-to-win prizes.

All restaurant tenants will be open with regular menu offerings along with varying holiday specials and discounts. Bring blankets or lawn chairs and picnic in the park or the plaza with “Grab & Go” dining deals from participating Westgate restaurants before and during the fireworks show at 9pm.
