You’ve never celebrated Fourth of July like this before. At the massive 4th of July Swing Convention, 2017 marks the 35th year and makes it the longest-running swing convention in the western states. Hosted by the Greater Phoenix Swing Dance Club, this year it’s hosted at the nearby Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel and Spa July 6 – 9. Get your tickets now regardless of your swing experience (from none to pro!) and experience a unique Phoenix Fourth.
Head to the Fabulous Phoenix Fourth, the largest celebration in the state, complete with a free fireworks show. With 100,000 people in attendance, it’s held at Steele Indian School Park. As the biggest city in Arizona, Phoenix sets the bar high and the incredible fireworks show is televised around the state.
