In consultation with Colorado River Fire & Rescue, the City of Rifle will proceed with the annual Independence Day fireworks display on Monday, July 3rd, beginning at approximately 9:45 p.m.  The Annual July 3rd Celebration begins in the morning with a full day of family activities.

Tickets may be purchased in advance for the pool on the City website, Tickets at the window will be based on availability.

At Centennial Park, Symphony in the Valley’s ensemble, Noodle Soup, will be playing a Dixieland Jazz concert beginning at 7:00pm.

Symphony in the Valley will then present a patriotic concert beginning at 8:00pm at the Centennial Park Amphitheater. The PA system will be extended so you can enjoy great symphony sound even if you are not seated in front of the stage. Food vendors will be at the park as well.

Come early and enjoy the afternoon visiting Rifle businesses, restaurants and the park prior to the show. Centennial Park is a beautiful venue with a great playground and excellent picnic spots. Stop by a local restaurant and grab some carry-out and enjoy the festive atmosphere. The Centennial Park water spray pad will operate for extended hours that night until 8:30pm.

Large crowds are expected for these festivities. The trail to Centennial Park will be shut down during the fireworks. Parking is available at all City lots, Rifle Middle School and the fairgrounds. The parking lot at the park on West Fifth Street will be closed to all traffic to allow for ADA parking and drop-off.
