4th of July Festival and Fireworks at Schnepf Farms

July 4, 2020

things to do in Phoenix, Arizona


at Schenpf Farms


Back in the Early 60’s Ray Schnepf thought the town needed a firework show, so he flew his little twin engine over to New Mexico and bought up the best fireworks display he could pay for. And if you can believe it, he loaded him in his plane and few back to the farm. Knowing nothing about fireworks except playing with them, the folks came to Ray Schnepf Farms to Celebrate America. He continued celebrating the 4th and provided the residents of the small farming community of Queen Creek a 4th of July they could remember.

During the 90’s and first part of 2000, the Kiwanis’s Club of Queen Creek took over the responsibility of the 4th of July. The Schnepf’s just let them use their land at no charge, to bring the community together to Celebrate America on July 4th. After several years, the Kiwanis’s Club couldn’t continue on as the producers, so it was taken over by Christ the King Church in 2014 and the “Freedom Project” was created. It’s now returned to the Schnepf Family to again try and provide an incredible fireworks show to everyone in the community.

After a 2018 hiatus due to road improvements around the farm, the event has now returned to the 3rd & 4th generation of the Schnepf Family to provide a spectacular fireworks show for those of the Queen Creek and surrounding communities! This year’s classic local event will feature live music, watermelon eating contests, a National Flag Service, artisan vendors, food trucks, beer & wine garden, lawn games, and a 30-minute firework show to end the night. You won’t want to miss this local treasure’s tradition; come out and enjoy fireworks and a good hometown celebration under the stars with family and friends!

General Admission pricing includes parking and admission per car load.

Keeping the energy alive in the heatwave of July, will be Arizona’s top DJs. Hosting stage games, crowd shout-outs and live giveaways!

Spectators will enjoy first class seating to a thoroughly designed, 30 minute firework display!
