2018 Rotary Club of Ventura 4th of July Fireworks Show and Family Picnic


Rotary Club of Ventura proudly presents the 24th Ventura Fireworks Show celebrating family, community and country on the 4th of July at the beautiful Ventura College fields. Gates open at 5 pm with a spectacular fireworks show at 9 pm. The evening also includes live music, robotics demonstration, giveaways, food vendors, and a Kids Fun Zone with bounce houses, GIANT inflatable attractions and organized games. Discounted Family Packs are available at venturafireworks.com now through July 4th at 5 pm. Tickets will also be available at Vons and at the Gate.

The fireworks show is custom designed by the California-based, award-winning experts at Pyro Spectaculars. This Sky Concert will feature over 3,000 firework effects finely choreographed to a contemporary musical mix. All guests enjoy a front row seat to this amazing display.

Saurabh Bajaj, Rotarian and Chair for the Fireworks Committee said, “My family has been enjoying the Rotary Fireworks for over 10 years. We love the community feel, the shared laughter and celebration, all in our beautiful hometown of Ventura. This is one of my favorite annual events and I am honored to work with a dedicated team of volunteers to make it happen this year.”

Guests may bring a picnic, including food, coolers, non alcoholic drinks (in plastic or aluminum), blankets and soft folding chairs. Small umbrellas are allowed, however pop-ups and large umbrellas are not allowed.  Please no pets and no BBQs/stoves. Games and activities like hula hoops and Frisbees are welcome as are your dancing shoes and positive attitude.

“People may not realize that their ticket purchases not only make the event possible, they also support our community,” Bajaj said. 100% of the net proceeds benefit charitable community programs right here in Ventura.  Past Ventura Rotary projects include Coats for Kids which brings new/gently used coats to families in need of help and Project Backpacks which provides back packs filled with school supplies so students in need start the school year ready to learn.  Ventura Rotary is also proud to support community efforts such as scholarships at Ventura College, arts and music, local food pantries, youth education programs, community gardens and more.

Tickets are available at each entrance gate the night of the event at standard rates of $8 adult, $6 child (4-12 years). Single tickets only at gate. Children 3 and under are FREE!
