Celebrate Independence Day in Coronado! Come to The Del early on July 2 for a beach party with a live band and fireworks for overnight guests.

Independence Day in Coronado is as iconic as the island and The Del itself. Coronado Island celebrates July 4th with an annual parade, a fun run/walk, rough water swim, art-in-the-park and a concert at Spreckels Park. The day concludes with a spectacular fireworks finale over San Diego Bay, viewed from the Coronado Ferry Landing, or a fireworks display in Glorietta Bay.  Click here for more details about July 4th in Coronado.

Celebrate early on July 2 with our Del Beach Bash, an annual tradition for Hotel del Coronado and Beach Village guests alike. We transform the beach into a party to remember with live music by Ron’s Garage band, bars, fire pits, s’mores and a spectacular fireworks display.
