Travel Paso and City Partner to Provide Free Celebration

PASO ROBLES, CA, Friday, May 6, 2022 – The City of Paso Robles is hosting a free 4th of July celebration at Barney Schwartz Park. The celebration will include family-friendly activities throughout the day and culminate with a fireworks show. Travel Paso is the main community sponsor of the event.   

A fireworks event hasn’t been held at Barney Schwartz Park since 2012. During the decade it was staged, the event was an extremely popular choice for locals and visitors to celebrate the national holiday, drawing up to 20,000 attendees for the full day and evening event. 

This year the City has a new sponsor, Travel Paso, who is donating $50,000 to help fund the celebration. Travel Paso, is a local nonprofit tourism marketing organization whose mission is to promote Paso Robles. “Tourism matters!” states John Arnold, Chairperson for Travel Paso and General Manager for the Holiday Inn Express in Paso Robles. “We are honored to partner with the City and provide this gift to our community as we celebrate the nation’s birthday.”

“We’re excited to put on this event again and extremely grateful to Travel Paso for donating nearly half of the funds needed to make this event happen,” said Mayor Steve Martin. “Other community partners have been stepping up as well. It has been a great reminder about the lengths residents and businesses go to take care of their community.”

Anyone interested in volunteering for the event will receive a free t-shirt, parking pass, food voucher and the community’s sincerest gratitude. Email if you would like to volunteer. 

The City launched an event website with celebration details and FAQs so residents are fully prepared to enjoy the event.  The website will be updated regularly, please visit for more information.
