Fireworks Over Paso Robles

Celebrate Independence Day in Paso Robles for a special community event – Paso Pops is a family-friendly patriotic celebration featuring the San Luis Obispo Symphony orchestra, activities and fireworks.

I think we’d all agree that the 4th of July is an all-American favorite. Friends and family gather in the middle of summer around the smell of smoky barbeque, ice cold drinks, local parades and of course the awe-inspiring fireworks shows among other unique traditions to commemorate America’s independence. We invite you to add Paso Pops to your patriotic holiday traditions. 

Paso Pops, now in its third year, brings the community of Paso Robles (and beyond) together for a festive celebration you’ll be sure to make a family tradition. Held at the Paso Robles Event Center on July 4, 2018 this annual event features live music, family-friendly activities, beer & wine, food and fireworks.

To reserve your Paso Pops table purchase your President, Vice President or Speaker table for exclusive perks that may include VIP parking, a gourmet picnic lunch from Cass Café, a walk-around wine tasting featuring the Paso Robles Rhone Rangers, Firestone Walker beer & Cass Winery wine table service and more! With a table purchase you can also decorate your table to show off your Fourth of July flare. Tables will be judged, and awesome prizes will be awarded.

General admission has some pretty cool perks too! Tickets are just $20 and allow two children 12 and under at no cost with your paid ticket. Discounts are available for active and retired military, students and seniors.

Paso Pops attendees are welcome to bring their picnics or can purchase food from a variety of local caterers, vendors and food trucks. Cass Winery wines and Firestone Walker Brewing Company beer will be available for purchase.

The program for the Independence Day show will be headlined by the San Luis Obispo Symphony and its new conductor Andrew Sewell.  Paso Wineman Casey Biggs will emcee Paso Pops for the third consecutive year. With the Paso Pops Team working hard to make this the best year yet here is a sneak peek to few great additions to this year’s celebration:

  • Kids Tent -  Little ones can spend time on fun art projects and playing at toy stations (there may even be goodie bags!).
  • Music - The SLO Symphony is working with Casey Biggs on an overtop musical program. Participants of the Paderewski Festival Youth Competition will also take the stage. 
  • Paso Pops Swag – More cool merchandise this year!

Once last thing before you go online and buy tickets - Net proceeds from Paso Pops will benefit the Paderewski Festival Youth Piano Competition and the Youth Cultural Exchange Program. It’s just another way to give back and support your Paso community!
