Come together with family, friends, and the Cambria community for the annual American Legion Fourth of July celebration at Shamel Park! From food to face painting and relays to raffles, this Independence Day event will be fun for all ages. Live music will be playing throughout the day.

The event will conclude with a stunning fireworks show—it’s sure to be a blast!

Cambria is well-known for being a charming, peaceful beach town located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles on Highway 1. On the Fourth of July, however, Cambria hosts one of the best celebrations on the Central Coast—and you’re invited!
