Pop Goes the Fort

Celebrate Fourth of July at Fort Bliss!

Note: This event has already passed.

This annual event is held each year with live entertainment, food trucks, glow merch and of course a spectacular fireworks display sponsored by USAA! 

This year's entertainment is performed by the 1st Armored Division Band and the El Paso Symphony Orchestra!

Patrons are able to bring their own canopies to stay cool, but will be set up in a designated area, so that it does not disrupt the view for others.
**When the area is filled, canopies will no longer be allowed into the park.**
Coolers, picnic blankets and chairs are welcome! 

**Please remember outside alcoholic beverages, glass containers or pets are prohibited at the park.**

Safety Wristbands:

Parents, children ages 10 and younger need a wrist bracelet to enter Biggs Park.

The wrist bracelet is for the safety of a child who may become lost at the Pop Goes the Fort event. Biggs Park is a huge area and can easily be overwhelming for young kids who can’t remember where they left their parents. This bracelet will help them find their lost parent.

  • Saturday, June 17 from 11AM - 2PM at Aquapalooza!
  • Thursday, June 29 from 11AM - 1PM // Freedom Crossing
