City of Peoria All-American Festival at Home (Updated 6/30/2020): As a result of the increase in community spread of COVID-19, the city of Peoria made the difficult decision to cancel the fireworks show previously planned at three locations for the All-American Festival at Home this Saturday, July 4. The health and well being of Peoria’s residents is the No. 1 priority so event organizers have decided to reimagine Peoria’s annual Independence Day celebration this year. The All-American Festival at Home will be a full day of fun activities easily accessible from computer screens, mobile devices and TVs. Residents can participate in a cannonball contest, take a tour of a fire station, learn about fire safety, get BBQ tips from local restaurateurs, play trivia and more with their families from the comfort of their homes. The city will also rebroadcast the best of previous fireworks shows at the end of the day. Tune into the show on the City of Peoria’s Facebook page, Peoria Ch. 11 through Cox Channel 11 and CenturyLink Channel 8509, YouTube at Digital Peoria and twitter.com/peoriaaz

Schnepf Farms Hometown Fourth (Updated 7/1/2020): We love this holiday and everything it stands for. But these last several months have been difficult for nearly everyone. Sometimes it feels like it’s too much to handle.
Because of this crazy time, we are doing something different. First, we are cancelling the Hometown 4th celebration at the farm with food trucks, music, vendors etc., so no need to drive to the farm. Second, we are NOT cancelling the fireworks! Thanks to the continued partnership with the Town of Queen Creek, the fireworks show is happening. We are going to shoot off larger shells that go much higher so you can stay home with your families and friends and BBQ, laugh, talk and enjoy an incredible fireworks show. This year while we won’t gather on the farm, the fireworks will shoot off at approx 9pm. Please remember, do not drive to the farm to watch the fireworks. We will be closed and there will be no parking on the road shoulders.
Thank you. Have a safe and happy 4th. All of you who have purchased tickets will be issued a refund.schnepffarms.com
