What has changed with this event since it was last hosted in 2019?

The 2022 event will be very similar to the look at feel of 2019, which was the last year our full-scale event was held prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The location, date, time, parking costs and band (6 Million Dollar Band) are the same.  Many of the food vendors (Comforts of Home, Cyndy’s Food-Lish-Us, DC Concessions, Kona Ice, La Hacienda, Olde Tyme Kettle Corn and WeChef) and pay-for-play vendors (face painters, tot train, light-up toys) have returned, as well.

In the general admission area, we have added a few new food vendors, a new pay-for-play bungee jump opportunity, a free carnival alley with prizes (14 carnival booths) and some walk-around entertainment. In lieu of fireworks, this year’s celebration will conclude with a new and innovative 150-drone light show. The 12-minute aerial display will start at 9:30 p.m. and feature multiple designs and choreographed movements from a fleet of drones set to patriotic music. Drones will fly 400 feet into the air above Salisbury Park and be visible from up to two miles away, depending on vantage point. Please note, the optimal viewing experience will be from Salisbury Park at the event.  

In addition to the general admission area, the All American Experience Pass, an optional event upgrade, is returning for 2022. For 2022, the inflatables that were previously on the general admission grass are now being placed in a ballfield and will be exclusively available for those that purchase an All American Experience Pass.
