San Francisco 4th of July Overview

Abigail Adams received a letter from her husband dated July 2, 1776, the day the Second Continental Congress completed revisions on the Declaration of Independence. John Adams had predicted that future Americans would commemorate the milestone with “pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports… bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

Though John was two days early, he was dead on with his guess about Independence Day celebrations. And come July 4, there’s no better place on the West Coast to party than San Francisco.

Fourth of July 2014 in San Francisco features a star-spangled list of soirees that would make everyone from Adams to Benjamin Franklin proud to be an American. There are arguably no Independence Day events in the Bay Area more patriotic than the San Francisco July Fourth Fireworks. Set off from the foot of the Municipal Pier, the pyrotechnics can be seen from Aquatic Park, Ghirardelli Square, and various boats along the harbor.

Not far south from there, red, white, and blue garb are on full display at the Redwood City Independence Day Parade & Festival, where guests get festive with carnival games, food, arts and crafts, and a chance to watch live music from battling bands.

San Francisco might not be one of the oldest cities in the U.S., but it is home to some of the finest Fourth of July celebrations, barbecues, bar deals, and live performances the nation has to offer. In 2014, make the founding fathers proud and head to the Bay Area for the Fourth!
