It’s officially summer and Independence Day is fast approaching! What are your plans for the fourth?
For our family, it’s the annual 4th of July Symphony and celebration!
Independence Day, July 4th: Los Gatos Symphony in the Park!
The Town of Los Gatos celebrates Independence day with free music, food and fun at Oak Meadow Park on Tuesday, July 4th from 11am – 3:30pm.
There will be great American music, barbecue, beer, snacks, games, a few words shared, train rides on the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad, rides on the historic carousel, and good fun for the family.
The San Jose Wind Symphony will come together once again, this year with a guest conductor Dr. Danielle Gaudry. This is the main feature, and their performance will begin at 1pm.
So take some friends, wine and a picnic, and enjoy your day at the park! Bring something to sit on, protect yourself from the sun, and prepare to have fun!
Remember, parking in Oak Meadow is free to Town residents, but spots are limited so carpool if you can and come early. If you’re willing to tackle a bit of a hike, there’s also limited street parking uphill from the park along University Ave. Oak Meadow walking paths also connect to Vasona Lake County Park where there is additional paid parking and a longer walk, but no hill to hike.
For more information, please see the info page on the town’s website for the July 4th happenings and the event flier.

Start your day with the Rose Garden’s Rose, White, and Blue Parade, stop by Saratoga’s 4th of July celebration at Kevin Moran Park for more “old fashioned” band music and fun, and wind down with more festivities and fireworks at the 8th annual Almaden Lake Park show! And those are just a few options! Don’t forget to check withing your neighborhood as well, since many HOAs, pool clubs, and neighborhood associations host events such as the Belwood community’s annual Independence Day party for residents.

Have a safe and happy Fourth, everyone!
