2022 Bishop 4th of July Celebration
It’s time to celebrate America’s birthday in the Bishop City Park. Together with many amazing community partners, the Bishop Fire Department is preparing to give Bishop an Independence Day to remember. The entire park will be full of activity throughout the day, and everyone is invited to join the fun! There will be food vendors, craft booths, live music, new beer and wine garden and more. Bring a picnic blanket, lawn chairs and the whole family for an afternoon celebration. After 9 p.m. tune in to KIBS, 100.7 FM for synchronized music and look to the sky for the fireworks spectacular, which will be launched from the east side of the Bishop City Park. Guests are welcome to spread out throughout the park, in the baseball fields, or watch from home in the downtown area.

TIPS FOR A GREAT 4TH IN THE PARK:
- Come early, get a good parking spot, enjoy the day in the park. Consider walking or biking to the event as parking is limited.
- Picnics okay, but DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN ALCOHOL. Beer and wine will be available for purchase to be consumed in a designated location (the beer/wine garden will be hosted by Friends of the Tri-County Fair as a fundraiser for facility improvements).
- Leave Fido at home – there’s a no dog ordinance for the park, plus all dogs hate fireworks.
- NO PERSONAL FIREWORKS ALLOWED.
Fireworks, music and activities are offered free of charge, but donations are gladly accepted to help offset costs. For more information, call Bishop City Hall (760) 873-5863.
