The Oceanside Parks & Recreation team will have crafts and fun lawn games set up while we wait for the fireworks display at 9:00 p.m. Picnicking is encouraged when gates open at 4:00 p.m. and food trucks will be on site.  Live musical entertainment will begin at 7:00 p.m.!


Bring a beach chair or blanket to sit on and enjoy a spectacular show at this free, family-friendly event.  Bring a picnic or grab a bite to eat from one of the food trucks at the site.  Sorry, no alcohol or dogs are permitted.


Personal use of consumer fireworks are illegal in the City of Oceanside.  Leave it to the professionals!

Why July 3?

Ensuring everyone’s safety is our top priority, and conducting the fireworks celebration a day early aligns with Oceanside’s birthday (incorporated on July 3, 1888), and allows us to allocate the city’s resources efficiently.  Since we have tens of thousands of beachgoers on July 4, many of our public safety resources are directed in and around the beach on the fouth.  Help us kick off the festivities one day early and make this Independence Day a safe and happy celebration for our city and country.
