Americafest at the Rose Bowl Stadium is a large patriotic celebration of all things red, white and blue. AmericaFest welcomes tens of thousands for a day full of tailgating, celebration, and entertainment including a motorcycle stunt show and a world-renowned fireworks display. This year, Americafest will be hosted virtually.


Focused around legacy and community-building, the one-hour virtual event will feature celebrations of our United States Veterans and military personnel, messages from our community thanking first responders, frontline workers and their personal heroes for their work during COVID-19, as well as a salute to America with a message for why we celebrate the 4th of July. At the culmination of the online-based event, there will be a flyover of Pasadena and its most historic landmarks.


The virtual event will include an incredible lineup of songs performed by platinum award-winning artist, Andy Grammer. Additionally, there will be music from Cello artist, Cecilia Tsan who will be performing live two solos from the 100-inch telescope dome on top of Mt. Wilson in honor of our United States Fallen Heroes and the first responders and frontline workers for their admirable work and courage during COVID-19.


Mt. Wilson has been testing a special art installation called “Sunstar”, created and owned by artist Liliane Lijn and astrophysicist John Vallerga. The prism will be moving throughout the day to shine a bit of pure color from the Sun over Pasadena for residents to enjoy throughout the virtual 4th of July event.
