Sugar Land, TX – There’s a new look, new feel and new location for one of Sugar Land’s largest community events.
The city’s Fourth of July celebration is moving from Constellation Field to the brand new Sugar Land Festival Site, 18355 Southwest Freeway, on Tuesday, July 4, from 5-10 p.m. Fireworks will be launched at approximately 9:45 p.m.
With the new location, the Star Spangled Spectacular event will be larger than ever before!
This year, the event will highlight patriotic family fun with activities for all to enjoy coupled with great food and a variety of music! Festive entertainment and activities will include a children’s zone complete with fun photo opportunities and face painting, onsite voter registration, a variety of information stations and a main stage area featuring local talent. Austin’s modern party band, Satellite, will take the stage along with appearances from DJ/Drummer Don Vaughn and Svet, an electro hip hop violinist. The event will conclude with a dazzling fireworks display that families can enjoy from various locations throughout the Sugar Land area.
Unlike past Fourth of July events at Constellation Field, tickets are not needed for this year’s event at the festival site. As with any large event, attendees are asked to be patient, arrive early and pay attention to event signage. Parking passes are required for onsite parking and can be obtained at sugarlandtx.gov/july4 while supplies last.
“To maximize on-site parking, we are offering an opportunity to reserve a free parking pass from the Imperial Park Recreation Center. The parking pass is free but comes along with only one stipulation -- a promise to carpool with a minimum of four people or more per vehicle,” says Event Production Manager Briana Bachemin.
Free onsite parking will be limited to the first 2,000 people who sign up for passes using the online website portal on the event webpage and those with a handicapped parking placard. Onsite event parking lots will open at 4 p.m.
In addition to onsite parking, free shuttle service will be available at various off-site parking locations. Shuttles will run continuously from 4:30 p.m. to midnight from Mercer Stadium, 16403 Lexington Blvd, the Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land, 18111 Lexington Blvd., and University of Houston Sugar Land, 14000 University Blvd. Ridesharing and taxi services will also be accommodated.
The event is free and open to the public. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
