San Diego Convention Center Hosts Fourth of July Community Celebration

You're invited to celebrate America's birthday with us at the San Diego Convention Center for a night of food, fireworks, giveaways and family fun.

One of the best views of the Port of San Diego's 4th of July Big Bay Boom is from the San Diego Convention Center's waterfront terraces. As the region's premier gathering place, we want to make sure that members of the community have the opportunity to experience events at our world-famous venue.

So what can you expect? For the first time, the public will be able to taste and purchase our brand new menu item that we provide to associations and customers who hold events at the convention center: Beer Battered Fish Tacos made fresh by our food and beverage partners at Centerplate. There will also hot dogs wrapped in apple wood smoked bacon and grilled chicken sausage for purchase, as well as a variety of snacks including red, white and blue potato salad, frito pies with homemade chili and cole slaw.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase for guests 21 and over.

"We are San Diego, and this event allows us to host an event that is part of being a San Diegan. Members of the community can come join us, gather together and enjoy a beautiful night with their families," said San Diego Convention Center Corporation Board Chair Gil Cabrera.

The viewing area location is on the upper west terrace of the San Diego Convention Center, overlooking the bay. Signage will be available to lead you around the back of the venue.

We encourage you use public transportation. Take the MTS Green Line and exit at Convention Center.

There is parking in the underground garage managed by the Port of San Diego and Ace Parking. They will charge a fee of $35 to park.

We hope to see and your family on July 4!
