It's summertime in Frisco. Typically, that means floating the lazy river at a RoughRiders baseball game or cheering on FC Dallas at a soccer match. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, events have been postponed and some of our favorite places are still temporarily closed, but one thing is for sure...

July 4th is not cancelled


The Frisco Freedom Fest fireworks show is on. The annual Independence Day celebration in Frisco will take place Saturday, July 4. All other annual events and activities have been cancelled, but event organizers are looking forward to a fun, safe and celebratory show this year! If you're planning to be in Frisco July 4th weekend, here is what you need to know:

Make It a Weekend

Things are a little different these days, but we can assure you, fun is still here. Head to this page to see the status of restaurants, attractions and fun throughout Frisco. A few fun things we recommend:

  • Museums and Attractions: Several of Frisco's museums and attractions have reopened. All are implementing capacity restrictions and enhancing cleaning and safety procedures. 
  • Shopping: Shopping is open! Stop by the locally-owned boutiques in the Rail District or take advantage of big-store savings at The Centre at Preston Ridge or Stonebriar Centre.
  • Events: Aside from Frisco Freedom Fest, there are a few events happening, including live music around town and the Frisco RoughRiders Texas Collegiate League baseball games.
  • Places to Eat: All this fun and you're bound to work up an appetite. Check to see which restaurants have reopened dine-in or patio service and are continuing to-go/delivery service here. If you want to enjoy a good meal while watching the fireworks, consider heading to the Rail Yard, Chito's, Jake's or Rotolo's, which all offer a good view of the show.
