Press release from the City of Everett: 

EVERETT June 18 – Community members are invited to celebrate July Fourth with the City of Everett. The free event will be hosted at Legion Memorial Park, kicking off at 3 p.m. with fireworks beginning at 10 p.m.

“Our Fourth of July Festival and fireworks show are beloved traditions for our community and I’m so glad we’ve been able to continue hosting these fun festivities,” said Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin. “And with the robust events schedule, Everett is the place to be this summer! These events will attract thousands of visitors to spend time – and money- in Everett in the coming months which will be great for our businesses and our city.”

The Fourth of July Festival will include something for everyone:

  • Enjoy some great tunes in the park: from 5:00-6:00 pm, we will have Kelle Bradley; from 6:30-7:30 pm, it’s The Jaws of Brooklyn; and leading up to the fireworks show, from 8:00-10:00 pm, Eden will be performing.
  • Save your appetite for the delicious food trucks! With over a dozen options, there’s something to satisfy every craving. Also, Everett Music Initiative will host their annual beer garden with tasty local beverages for anyone 21+. The beer garden will be by the music stage, giving a prime view of the performances.
  • Kids in tow? There’s fun for them, too. Imagine Children’s Museum will be at the festival with fun kid-friendly activities. Plus, Legion Memorial Park has a great playground and ball fields. We encourage attendees to bring fun yard games to play at the park as well.
  • At 10 p.m., the Thunder on the Bay fireworks show will light up the sky over Port Gardner Bay.

“Everett puts on the best Fourth of July celebration around, in my opinion,” said Tyler Chism, the City’s placemaking manager. “What’s better than a sunny day in the park with friends, food and free entertainment? Top it off with a world-class fireworks show and it’s hard to beat.”

Public parking is not available at Legion Memorial Park on July 4, but starting at 3 p.m., there will be a free shuttle, courtesy of Everett Transit. Park for free at Everett Community College and catch the convenient shuttle from 2206 Tower Street. The shuttle will transport riders directly to the festival entrance at Legion Park, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free arrival.
