As the United States readies for its birthday, the community of Anthem is preparing to host its annual Independence Day celebration. The event, slated for Monday, July 3, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., promises an exciting array of activities for all ages, culminating in a stunning fireworks display.

The celebration is expected to draw between 8,000 to 10,000 people this year, matching its impressive turnout in previous years. Visitors can expect a vibrant atmosphere filled with rides, inflatables, dancing, and a food and beer garden to satiate all appetites.

Entry and parking for the event are entirely free of charge, encouraging families from across the region to come and partake in the festivities. For those eager to enjoy unlimited rides, all-you-can-ride wristbands will be available for purchase both at the event and in advance from June 1 to July 2 at the Anthem Community Center (41130 N. Freedom Way) and the Anthem Civic Building (3701 W. Anthem Way). Further details about operational hours and other relevant information can be found on the community’s website,

With an expected surge in traffic and a large crowd, attendees are encouraged to plan ahead and include extra time for commuting and parking. They are also invited to bring along lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic items to make the most of the evening’s festivities. However, in line with safety regulations, attendees are advised that alcoholic beverages, BBQ grills, personal fireworks, and pets are strictly prohibited at the event.
The Food Court promises to be a highlight of the celebration, offering a tantalizing selection of dishes from a variety of food trucks.

For businesses looking to gain visibility and support the community, a limited number of exhibitor booths and sponsorships are currently available. Packages and additional information can be acquired through the Anthem’s Special Events staff at 623-742-6050 or online at
