First at the Fountain

Date: July 01, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Join us on Friday, July 1st as we celebrate Independence Day early. Due to fireworks and pyro tech shortage, the Town was able to secure fireworks and staff for July 1st instead of July 4th. This is the SAME amazing event, just a new date for 2022. We plan to be back on the July 4th in 2023.

Put on your red, white, and blue and join friends and neighbors at Fountain Park on Friday, July 1, 2022, to celebrate Independence Day in Fountain Hills at our FIRST at the Fountain celebration! The festivities will kick off at 7:00 pm with music and prizes. Rock Lobster will be performing from 7:30-9:00 pm. The evening will conclude with a majestic fireworks display at 9:00 PM over the Park’s picturesque Fountain Lake. Our world famous fountain will be lit up with red, white, and blue.

What Independence Day event would be complete without some pyrotechnics? The First at the Fountain program will conclude with a majestic fireworks display at 9:00 pm over the park’s picturesque Fountain Lake.

The First at the Fountain program has been designed to be a community-wide event open to guests of all ages and completely free of charge. This year, attendees are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets to relax and enjoy an evening full of fun throughout the park. Food vendors will also be on hand with Italian ice, frozen lemonade, and other goodies to help you beat the heat.

Public parking throughout downtown Fountain Hills will be available. Please note temporary road closures will be in effect from 4 to 11 p.m. to allow pedestrians to enter and exit the park. Event guests are welcome to bring Frisbees, balls, and other games but please observe the following:
