Westgate Entertainment District is an entertainment and dining destination in Glendale, just west of Phoenix. It is adjacent to Jobing.com Arena and University of Phoenix Stadium.

If this isn't the 4th of July event you are looking for, try the Greater Phoenix 4th of July Celebration Guide.

What happens at Firework Fest?

There will be live music featuring classic American Rock & Roll, as well as a display of historic military vehicles and a vintage helicopter.

Many of Westgate's restaurants will offer grab-'n'-go specials that you may purchase and take with you to enjoy at Fountain Park (or any Westgate parking lot, if you just want to watch the fireworks from your car). You'll find these deals at Calico Jack’s Cantina, McFadden’s, Saddle Ranch Chop House, The Shout! House, Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Shane’s Rib Shack, Kabuki Japanese Restaurant, Johnny Rockets, Which Wich, Mama Gina’s, and Cold Stone Creamery. After the fireworks, it's the All-American Pub Crawl with drink specials for guests 21 and older.
