4th of July

"Freedom lies in being bold." – Robert Frost

We would like to wish all of you the best this Independence Day. We've been thought so much over the past year. But we persevered and are bold. And that's what makes us free.

If you want to celebrate the 4th with a grand event, come to the Rio Rancho 4th of July celebration at Campus Park.

For the first time ever, Campus Park, featuring the Sky Room outdoor performance space and amphitheater, will open to the public for some summer fun. Spectators will enjoy live music by the 44th Army Band and a special concert by the New Mexico Philharmonic. Following the performances, a spectacular fireworks show will begin. Admission to these events is free. For those wishing to only view the fireworks and not wanting to attend the musical performances or visit Campus Park, there is ample parking available in the multiple lots surrounding City Center. Visitors may park in the lots and tailgate as they enjoy a dazzling fireworks display.

Performance times:

  • 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm - 44th Army Band
  • 8:00 pm to 8:15 pm - Campus Park Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and reading of Independence Day Proclamation
  • 8:15 pm to 9:15 pm - New Mexico Philharmonic
  • 9:15 pm - Fireworks Extravaganza
Have a Safe and Happy Independence Day!
