Celebrate July 4th on Catalina Island

Arrive Early and Join the Day-Long Celebration

Avalon’s annual July 4th festivities begin at 1:00 pm with a Crescent Avenue parade of creatively-decorated golf carts, followed by a performance of the USC Trojan Marching Band and Song Girls.  At 3:30 pm, a procession of patriotic-themed dinghies, hosted by the Catalina Island Yacht Club, winds its way around Avalon Bay. Don't miss fireworks over the Avalon, starting at dusk.

The Catalina Island Company and the City of Avalon are excited to announce the return of the USC Trojan Marching Band to the Catalina Casino for an evening concert on the Fourth of July. “We’re looking forward to welcoming the Spirt of Troy back to the Casino Ballroom. With the Casino’s storied history of big band concerts, it’s only natural that the largest band to visit Avalon each year be invited to follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest musicians of all time. The concert will also give island visitors and residents the opportunity to help keep this patriotic tradition alive, as $10 of every ticket sold will be donated to cover the USC Band’s travel expenses”, said Wesley Alfvin, Creative Director of Activities for the Catalina Island Company.

Doors will open at 6:30pm, and the concert will begin promptly at 7:30pm. Tickets start at $30.50 and guarantee standing room only. Seating is available on a first-come-first-serve basis, and refreshments will be available for purchase at the bar in the Casino Ballroom. Following the concert, guests will be invited to stay and enjoy the annual fireworks display at 9:00pm from the Casino’s Ocean Promenade. Get tickets
