July 4th Grand Canyon Celebrations for 2023

Fourth of July
Enjoy the Fourth of July in the Grand Canyon area

July 4th  in the Grand Canyon Area for 2023

Northern Arizona is typically very dry in July, so Fireworks often get Cancelled. However, the Town that consistently displays Fireworks near Grand Canyon is Page, Arizona (my Home Town) where Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon are located:

Celebrate the 4th of July at one of the seven wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon!

There are parades and parties all over the four regions of the Canyon and no end to fun and relaxation.

Here is some Area Information on what to do:

SOUTH RIM AREA – If you are staying in the South Rim area such as Tusayan, Williams, Flagstaff, or Sedona…

Tusayan – The little town at the South Entrance to Grand Canyon National Park will commemorate July 4th with a "Tribute To The West" parade, games, live bands, Native American Dancers, and 2 live Drone Light Shows for 2023!

Williams – If you are looking for an “All-Americana” experience complete with parades, ice cream and barbeque, Williams is the town for you. Fourth of July fireworks canceled for 2023; set for Labor Day instead

Flagstaff – Flagstaff will start off with a Parade in the downtown on Beaver, Aspen and San Francisco streets. Fire Restrictions are in effect, so Flagstaff will be having a Laser Light Show out at Fort Tuthill County Park. Festivities will begin at 5pm.

Sedona - Sedona celebrates the 4th of July with a Wet Fest at the Sedona Community Pool in 2023.

EAST RIM – If you are visiting Horseshoe Bend, hiking through Antelope Canyon, or staying on a houseboat on Lake Powell, then Page, Arizona is the place to celebrate!

Page – The Town of Page will host a wonderful American parade down Mainstreet at 10am, events following at the John C. Page Memorial Park, Live Concert at the Lake Powell National Golf Course at 6pm, and end the Celebration with an evening of Fireworks from beginning between 9-9:30pm for 2023!

Grand Canyon West - No special events planned at this time.

NORTH RIM AREA – If you are going to the North Rim and will be in Kanab…

Kanab – A small western town just 1 hour and half from the North Rim starts the day off with a Bang...literally, firing a Cannon at 6am! Breakfast, Parade, Food Fair, Live Music with Fireworks for 2023.

    1. Shana,

      Only at the surrounding Towns...and this Surrounding Towns, I mean ONLY Page, Arizona (we don't have any forests to burn down...just sand and sandstone) as the Coconino National Forest is currently closed due to threat of Forest Fire. We've had a VERY HOT and DRY year.

      Here is the Headline on AZCentral:

      Thank You,


  1. Are there any fireworks shows at the Grand canyon this year in 2018? Are there any other activities on the 4th, is so where? Thanks!

    1. Amber,

      There will NOT be Fireworks at the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff or Williams, Arizona this year.

      Here are the Activities that will be at Tusayan at the South Entrance to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon:
      This years theme Proud to be Grand Canyon!
      Thanks to the Town of Tusayan this year we will close the Celebration with a Laser Light Show!

      2:30 pm -Bike Decorating Contest - sponsored by Bright Angel Bicycles

      Page, Arizona WILL have fireworks. Page is where Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon are located. (It's hard to burn down sandstone and sand...)

      Thank You,


  2. Hi
    Would somebody please be able to give me possible 4th of July celebration details - or weblinks - for 2020 - in and around Grand Canyon village - we will hopefully be staying there for a few days at that time.
    Many thanks.

    1. Kris,

      This is always a wait and see depends on how dry the Forest's get.

      Normally, Flagstaff and Williams will have Fireworks, this year, with COVID recovery still going on...maybe/probably not.

      However, Page, Arizona ALWAYS has Fireworks because we're surrounded by Sandstone and Lake Powell which won't burn the area, COVID or Not we have a Fireworks display.

      I hope this helps as you plan your Visit!
