This year’s celebration will be held from July 2–4, 2021, and has been modified to adhere to statewide COVID-19 guidelines that may be in place at that time. Festivities include neighborhood car parades, an outdoor pier plaza festival, socially distanced and virtual Surf City 5k runs, and home/business decorating contests. The events will be capped off with an incredible firework show over the Pacific Ocean.

“There’s no better place to celebrate the 4th of July than Huntington Beach,” says Mayor Kim Carr. “Our residents truly embrace the spirit of independence, and we invite the community to come out and take part in the modified celebration. We have something for everyone and look forward to celebrating with you this year.”
