The Rose Bowl Stadium will host its 95th Annual AmericaFest Celebration in-person after moving the event to a virtual event format last year due to the global pandemic. The annual fireworks show is recognized as one of the nation’s largest and longest running shows to celebrate America’s birthday.
“The Rose Bowl Stadium is so iconic for many things, but the annual AmericaFest is an event that brings all of Pasadena and beyond, together,” said Mayor Victor Gordo. “Last year, due to the global pandemic, the Stadium pivoted the 94-year-old tradition to a virtual event format, but we are thrilled to once again welcome Pasadena back home to celebrate America, at America’s Stadium.”
The theme of this year’s annual celebration is “Celebrating America’s Perseverance”. This year’s event will welcome all of Pasadena and beyond.
The Rose Bowl Stadium has partnered with Jet Propulsion Laboratory to highlight their recent accomplishment in landing NASA’s Perseverance rover on Mars, as well as their dedication to earth sciences and the future explorations of the world’s solar systems.
“We are unbelievably excited about welcoming fans back to the Rose Bowl Stadium for the first large-scale event since the pandemic started,” said Rose Bowl Stadium Chief Revenue Officer, Jens Weiden. “This will be the greatest welcome home party you’ve ever experienced complete with the longest running fireworks display on the West Coast. You won’t want to miss it!”
This year’s event program will include TNT Freestyle Motocross and a tribute to veterans and active military personnel. The evening will also feature an hour-long, musical performance by an American soul singer, Mendelyev, who is best known for having been a contender on NBC’s “The Voice.” Mendelyev, along with his band, will bring a line-up of American classics for guests to sing along to and enjoy.
The Rialto-California based company, Pyro Spectaculars by Souza will once again light up the sky with the longest running and largest fireworks display on the West Coast. Pyro Spectaculars has been providing firework entertainment at the Rose Bowl Stadium for more than 35 years.
Tickets are now on-sale with pricing starting at $20. Parking lots will open at 5 p.m. and pre-purchased parking rates will start at $45.
