Join us on Saturday July 1, 2017 for the 22nd annual Firecracker Fandango, a FREE Independence Day festival! 

Firecracker Fandango is Odessa’s longest-running patriotic street festival and one of Downtown Odessa, Inc.’s largest fundraisers of the year. All sponsorship dollars go toward event costs and 100% of profit from the event funds revitalization projects for Downtown Odessa. 

Festivities will begin at 10 a.m. with an Odessa tradition, the Odessa Jaycees' 68th Annual Independence Celebration Parade . Later at 5 p.m., the gates for the 22nd annual Firecracker Fandango will open. This FREE family-friendly street festival features live bands and entertainment, children’s activities, food booths and much more.


The highlight of the evening will be a professional fireworks display, which is choreographed to patriotic music and broadcasted live on two Odessa radio stations. The fireworks are launched over Downtown Odessa and viewed annually by more than 40,000 people.
