Walla Walla will celebrate America’s independence with a classic, family-friendly annual 4th of July in the Park celebration. The annual, day-long event takes over historic Pioneer Park in Walla Walla and includes local music, entertainment, arts and crafts, food trucks, as well as local businesses, community service clubs, emergency responders, political candidates and more. Admission is free.
The annual community event is a long-standing local tradition and a classic representation of small-town Americana. Music, entertainment and a wide variety of food and vendor booths fill the park, where attendees can stroll under shade trees, listen to music, share a meal or a snack, shop, and visit.
Fourth of July in the Park is presented by the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, and sponsored by Columbia REA and Walla Walla Valley Honda. Center stage for featured events — all free — will be at the gazebo bandstand near the park’s center.
