San Jose

Celebrating their 105th year, the Rotary Club brings fireworks back to the Bay Area’s biggest city (yes, much bigger than SF) with a big fireworks show on Discovery Meadow. July 4, 2019 – Free.

Mountain View

The San Francisco Symphony plays their annual 4th of July show at Shoreline Amphitheater with fireworks sync’d to patriotic music.
