Maricopa is a city southwest of the Phoenix area. Maricopa isn't in the same county as Phoenix. Phoenix is in Maricopa County, and Maricopa is in Pinal County. Yes, that can be confusing! Maricopa was incorporated in 2003. The city celebrates the 4th of July with a community barbecue.
If this isn't the 4th of July event you are looking for, try the Greater Phoenix 4th of July Celebration Guide.
