Las Vegas Fireworks - 4th of July Events in Vegas

4th of July in Vegas

Fireworks in Las Vegas aren't exactly uncommon. Sin City likes to light up the sky for occasions big and small, but no Las Vegas fireworks show matches the one celebrating America's birthday. The 4th of July in Vegas  will be no exception, as Vegas hotels, nightclubs and pool parties work around the weird timing of the holiday (a Monday) for a weekend celebration to highlight the summer.

Here are a few Fourth of July events in Vegas to look out for...

Las Vegas Fireworks Shows

Alright, there's a whole bunch so here's a quick rundown ...

  • July 2nd-3rd @ Mandalay Bay - With a live performance by 311
  • July 3rd @ Caesars Palace - Day long celebration
  • July 4th @ Station Casinos in Vegas - 9pm
  • July 4th @ The Stratosphere - 9pm

Our advice? Arrive early, and look up. Oh, and make a beer run beforehand. 

On the 4th

Since many of us will have the day off, a number of Vegas bars will try to rope in the masses with novelty drink specials and (hopefully) some cheap beverages.

Las Vegas pools won't be a bad option either on the 4th, though any Vegas veteran can tell you to expect huge crowds. For the young-ins, Vegas pool parties not usually open on certain weekdays (see: Wet Republic, TAO Beach and Beachlife at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino) will come alive to celebrate what America's all about: booze, bikinis and babes.

If you're traveling with the kiddos, there's also a day-long parade and carnival in nearby Boulder City, capped off at night with a fireworks display at 9pm.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for something a bit more lively ...

The Weekend

For the most part, it looks like the 4th of July festivities will be pushed back just a couple of days to accommodate the weekend masses. Highlights of the 4th of July weekend in Vegas include...

  • July 1st: Diplo at Encore Beach Club & Zedd at XS Nightclub
  • July 2nd: Alesso at XS Nightclub and Tritonal at Marquee Nightclub 
  • July 3rd: Skrillex at XS Sunday Nightswim

These are just a handful of the events celebrating the 4th of July in Vegas. As always, we'd LOVE to hear from fellow Cheapos about other Independence Day events you're looking forward to in our comments section below!

Why is Ceasars's Palace so lame? Fireworks on July 7th?? I understand trying to get the weekend but don't try to reinvent the holiday.. Don't they know 4th of July means July 4th??? What's next? New Years on Jan 3rd???
Thumbs down Ceasars.. Quit trying to be original, you'll just hurt yourself..

We were told by locals and others that every casino has fireworks and drive to ceasars parking lot which we dis along with hundreds of others and saw absolutely zero except for far far away!!

Thanks to the bs from locals u wouldn't have a job without us so just remember that!!!

Families gotta hit up the local parks and festivities like parades. The strip is no place for children anyway.

I'm just surprised no MGM properties do fireworks on the 4th
...or the weekend after.
I remember the tourist are pissed every year.

why is their never family orieneted stuff!!

Because its Vegas!

Families should hit up the local park festivities and parades.
The strip is no place for your kids anyway.

There is! You just can't look for it on the Strip..
