Fourth of July Fireworks
at the Freedom Festival
in Redding, California, USA

As far as I know, there aren't any Independence Day, 4th of July fireworks at Shasta Lake itself. There is, however, a massive 4th of July Independence Day event in the City of Redding, California called the "Freedom Festival". And yes, it's FREE!

The Freedom Festival is a huge celebration which focuses on the fact that our country totally rocks. The festival is held on the lawn of the Redding Convention Center (Civic Auditorium). It's an all-day event with live music and vendors that ends with a huge, spectacular fireworks display at dark (10:00 p.m.).

Those who attend the Freedom Festival will also have a great opportunity to visit the Sundial Bridge that crosses over the Sacramento River. This glass-decked pedestrian bridge was opened to the public on July 4th, 2004 and is just a short walk from the Redding Convention Center.

Redding is about 10 miles south of Shasta Lake. It's about 25 miles if you're driving down from the town of Lakehead (upper Sacramento River arm of Shasta Lake).

The Freedom Festival can be fun if you get there early in the day and stake out your spot with a sun-shade and some blankets. It can be very hectic getting to the event by car if you come in the afternoon or evening however. Traffic is pretty bad and there probably won't be any parking at the event.

If you go to the festival early in the day, be prepared for very hot weather. Water, hats, sunglasses, light-colored clothing and sunscreen are strongly recommended. There will be many food and drink vendors at the event but you can bring your own ice chest, too. No alcoholic beverages are allowed at the event.

I usually just park somewhere in downtown Redding and ride my bike to the festival. You could also park somewhere in the general area and walk in if you were traveling light. Another option would be to take a taxi or have someone drop you off nearby. Once you get to the festival you shouldn't have a problem finding a spot to view the fireworks.

You could also take the Sacramento River Trail from Hilltop Drive & Dana Drive and walk or bike to the Freedom Festival fireworks. Head west from the intersection about one mile. Google Map showing trail access

To reach the Redding Convention Center from the Interstate 5 freeway (i-5) take the "44 west" exit and head west on Highway 44 for one mile. You'll see the exit for "Sundial Bridge Dr" (exit #1) just after you cross the Sacramento River. Take this exit and head north to the event.

If you want to see the fireworks, but can't make it to the Redding Convention Center (civic auditorium), you can watch them from other parts of Redding. Head into the general area at 10:00 p.m. and watch for the first fireworks. After you see where they're going up just cruise the main streets until you find a good viewing place.

If you have pets please be sure to get them indoors before the fireworks start. They may get scared by the sound and run off. No pets are allowed at the Freedom Festival.
