The City of Cupertino has canceled its annual Independence Day Celebration due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and extended Stay-at-Home and Shelter-in-Place Orders.

“This was a difficult but necessary decision for the health and safety of our community,” Mayor Steven Scharf said. “Our Independence Day Celebration, including the nighttime fireworks show, is one of the most beloved community events the City hosts each year. I look forward to the day when we can bring it back.”

Past celebrations—which attract thousands of guests and spectators— have included a pancake breakfast, children’s carnival, flag raising, children’s parade, concert, swimming, and the ever-popular fireworks show.
