Independence Day | 7/4
The 4th of July wouldn't be complete without barbecuing delicious food, swimming in the lake, and spending time with family and friends! Ellensburg is the all-American town you need to add to your Independence Day traditions this year. The historic downtown is the perfect setting for your celebration with walkable streets and a variety of restaurants, shops, museums, and more to keep you busy all weekend! Surrounded by nature, you're not far from lakes for fishing and swimming or trails for hiking and biking as well, so there are no limits on what adventures you can fit in this weekend!
Patriot Night Under the Lights | 7/4
After an exciting day of exploring Ellensburg, keep the celebrations going with Patriot Night Under the Lights! Kick off the night with Tracy Lawrence and end it with a bang with the largest fireworks show in town! Food vendors will be on site and you can grab a refreshing beer to cool off with at one of the beer gardens. After the show, those 21 and over can keep the party going at the Corona After Party featuring music from Folsom Prism, a Johnny Cash tribute band! Get your tickets for this event here.
