The Downtown Arcadia Patriotic Festival promises to fill south First Avenue with the spirit of American Independence. This free event will feature dozens of vendors with handicrafts and food, along with live music, and fun activities for kids. The night will be capped off with fireworks in honor of America’s 243rd birthday! The Festival takes place on Saturday, June 29, from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on First Avenue south of Huntington Drive in Downtown Arcadia. Fireworks will begin around 9:00 p.m. at First Avenue Middle School.

“This year’s Patriotic Festival promises to be the best one yet,” said Mayor April Verlato. “Downtown Arcadia is thriving and having fireworks this year highlights the success the District has achieved. Bring your friends and family to Downtown Arcadia to celebrate America and our freedom.”

Parking is available in the public parking lot between Huntington and Wheeler, or ride public transportation with the Metro Gold Line, exiting at the Arcadia station.
