The Rose Bowl Stadium, recognized as home to one of the nation’s largest and longest-running shows to celebrate America’s birthday, will host its 95th Annual AmericaFest Celebration in person this year on Sunday, July 4th, following last year’s virtual event due to the rising pandemic. It is a great privilege to provide an event that will bring family and friends alike to celebrate in person and enjoy the patriotic festivities of the day in the Arroyo.
The theme of this year’s annual celebration is “Celebrating America’s Perseverance” as we have recognized our ability to come together and stand stronger throughout this pandemic. This year’s event will welcome all of Pasadena and beyond, back to events at America’s Stadium.
The Rose Bowl Stadium is excited to partner with Jet Propulsion Laboratory to highlight their recent accomplishment in landing NASA’s Perseverance rover on Mars, as well as their dedication to earth sciences and the future explorations of the world’s solar systems to provide hope for the future discoveries in space.
This year’s event program will include a fan-favorite, TNT Freestyle Motocross who entertains a wide range of demographics with a thrilling, high-flying, high-energy thirty-minute show. This stunt show will be full of action-packed entertainment. Once again, the Rose Bowl Stadium will pay tribute to the United States Military Veterans, Active Military Personnel, as well as our Fallen Heroes. The evening will also feature an hour-long, musical performance by an American soul singer, Mendelyev, who is best known for having been a contender on NBC’s popular reality singing competition, The Voice. Mendelyev, along with his band, will bring a line-up of American classics for guests to sing along to and enjoy.
Want to watch the fireworks from the Stadium’s iconic turf? Donors and supporters of the event will have the option to gain VIP field access viewing for the event – complete with a Rose Bowl commemorative blanket, BBQ dinner, and other amenities. Donors to the event will be also recognized on the Stadium’s two video screens leading up to the famed firework show. **limited quantity of field seats are available**
