Are Barbeques Allowed?
No personal barbeques are allowed inside the festival grounds. Additionally, due to the layout of the event most of the stationary barbeques inside the park are inaccessible during festival dates.​ You are welcome to pack a picnic. On both days there will be more than a dozen vendors serving up tasty food and drinks.

Are dogs on leash allowed in the park?
No pets are allowed. Fireworks are scary for family pets. The Hagan Park Dog Park will be closed both days. So please, leave your pets where will be safe and happy - at home.

Are Personal Fireworks Allowed?
For the safety of all attendees, personal fireworks, including sparklers, are strictly prohibited in Hagan Park. Please leave the fireworks to the professionals. The Rancho Cordova 4th of July boasts one of the most spectacular fireworks displays in northern California. So enjoy the show, but do not stage one of your own.

Can I get to the River or Bike Trail from inside the Festival Grounds?
No. There is no River or Bike Trail access from the festival grounds. Individuals wishing to go to the river or to get on the bike trail will need to follow the outer perimeter of the festival fencing from the Chase Drive park entrance (follow fencing that is parallel to the soccer and baseball field to get to the bike trail and river).

We only accept cash payment for parking and admission wristbands.

Additionally Carnival wristbands can be purchased at Heritage Community Credit Union on Folsom Blvd and at Grocery Outlet on Zinfandel Dr.

Is alcohol allowed in the Park?
Alcohol will only be permitted in the three Beer Gardens. No alcoholic beverages may be brought into the park. This is a park rule and on the 4th of July is enforceable along the American River as well. At the Beer Gardens, special permits have been granted. Like a family restaurant, children are allow to join their parents at the table during the day. But after 6 pm, it's adults only. Bring your ID and be prepared to show it.

Is there bicycle parking?
Bicycle racks will be available at both the Chase Drive and rear admissions gates at Rancho Cordova Fourth of July. Please bring a lock and park at your own risk.
