All the top events happening in Chula Vista July 2024

Here are all the fun Chula Vista events in July 2024

We had an amazing June filled with events, and summer is still going strong in Chula Vista. One of the best things about our community is the abundance of free, family-friendly events. I love keeping you in the loop so you can take advantage of it. Make sure to get out there this summer and enjoy them. You might even spot me having a great time!

Follow me on Instagram or Facebook to catch new events as they pop up. You can also check our event calendar for a complete list of future events.

Chula Vista Fourth Fest at the Elite Training Center in Eastlake

Thursday, July 4th at 7 PM Location: Chula Vista Elite Training Center

Join the community for the big fireworks show at the training center. Gates open at 7 PM, and the fireworks start at 9 PM. Last year, people were lining up before 6 PM. They will have food trucks, but I recommend bringing your own food as the lines can get long. Last year, we waited almost 45 minutes for tacos.

Chula Vista 4th Fest is a fun event for the community
Ready to see fireworks for the Fourth of July? Then, get to the Chula Vista Elite Training Center early to save a good spot for the Chula Vista 4th Fest.

Salsa Under the Stars at the Otay Ranch Town Center

Tuesday Various Days at 4:30 PM Location: Otay Ranch Town Center

I attended the first event in June, and it was a blast! Manny Cepeda and his Orchestra had everyone dancing and enjoying the music. The event starts at 4:30 PM at the food pavilion. Grab some food from the Farmers Market and have fun. Check their website for the schedule, as the days may change.

Chula Vista Firefighters Pancake Breakfast

Saturday, July 6th at 8 AM Location: Chula Vista Fire Station Number 5

Here is another fantastic event for a great cause. Bring the family for a pancake breakfast and enjoy various activities. For $8, you get a firehouse-style breakfast of buttermilk pancakes, sausage, and hash browns cooked by firefighters. Purchase tickets online or on the event day, but I suggest getting them early to avoid lines.

Summer Sundays at the Village Walk in Eastlake

Every Sunday in July at 5:30 PM. Location: Village Walk in Eastlake

The Village Walk hosts a different car club and live band every Sunday from 5 PM to 7 PM. It’s a perfect way to end the weekend. There are kids’ crafts and other activities, and many businesses offer discounts. Check their website for the car club schedule.

This event happens every fourth Sunday at the Black Angus Restaurant on E Street from 11:30 AM to 2 PM. If you have lunch at Black Angus and mention the car show, you get $15 off your check. This is a great group; I’ll post more about them soon.

I have lived in this great community for over 30 years. In that time I have seen so many changes both good and bad. My goal is to promote this city and all of the good that goes on here. There are so many local events, small businesses and community groups making this city even better. You can always find me at the events taking photos. This site is a passion project of mine and I want to use this platform to get the community engaged. Get out and enjoy Chula Vista and make sure to follow me on all the socials for more!
