The City has hosted the Pfirecracker Pfestival at Lake Pflugerville for the last nine years. With three roadways adjacent to the park under construction this year, the city determined safety and logistical demands are best accommodated at a new location, The Pfield.

The City of Pflugerville has partnered with the Pflugerville Independent School District (PfISD) to host the 10th annual Pfirecracker Pfestival on July 4, 2017 at The Pfield, the new district-wide stadium located on Pecan Street across from Pflugerville High School. The event will be the first citywide festival held at the stadium.

“The Pfirecracker Pfestival is a tradition for Pflugerville to celebrate Independence Day and the USA,” said Mayor Victor Gonzales. “Since the city is expanding roadways near Lake Pflugerville to keep up with city growth, we are excited to have the opportunity to utilize a new location to host the Pfirecracker Pfestival. The Pfield is the optimum location with its seating for thousands and centralized location. In anticipation of the enormous crowd that enjoys celebrating Independence Day, I hope you’ll join me at The Pfield on July 4.”

With a launch site just outside The Pfield, guests can sit in the stands and watch the show. In addition, the event will include food trucks, a stage with live music, a Mayor’s welcome and patriotic music leading up to the fireworks display at dark.

“Hosting community-wide events like the Pfirecracker Pfestival is something PfISD definitely had in mind when the stadium was approved by voters in the 2014 bond,” Pflugerville Independent School District Communications Officer Steve Scheffler said. “We look forward to The Pfield serving not only as a fabulous athletic and music venue for PfISD students, but also for events like this one that bring residents together.”

Despite the roadway construction, Lake Pflugerville and the beach will remain open to the public on Independence Day weekend. However, fireworks-seeking crowds are encouraged to visit The Pfield for 2017. Visit the Pfirecracker Page for details on the clear bag policy, parking and schedule.
