Celebrate Lancaster 2020

June 24, 2020 | Department of Community Planning & Economic Development LOOP

Celebrate Lancaster is an annual celebration of Lancaster City’s vibrant culture & diversity along with the city’s Fourth of July celebration. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Celebrate Lancaster 2020 is taking a different format that spreads the event “around town” and does not involve large gatherings.


Celebrate Lancaster will take place Friday, June 26, 2020 throughout Lancaster City from 12 p.m. to dusk.

Here’s what to look forward to: four mobile performances with musicians on trucks bringing live music to every neighborhood, food trucks in different areas of the city for residents to enjoy, and to end the night there will be a fireworks display at dusk.

This year the Celebrate Lancaster fireworks will be spread out at two different locations; one in the Northwest quadrant & one in the Southeast quadrant. This means the firework shows can be viewed from various points of the city.

The brief firework shows will take place shortly after dark. The specific locations of the fireworks will not be announced in order to avoid crowds gathering. Residents are encouraged to watch from their porch, yard, or sidewalk and remain socially distanced.

A livestream of the fireworks will also be available online on the City of Lancaster’s Facebook Page. Please spread the word to your neighbors of the fireworks!


The City of Lancaster remains committed to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic by social distancing, staying 6 feet away from those you do not live with, and wearing a mask or face-covering in public. Be aware of this as you Celebrate Lancaster with us on June 26.
