Fireworks light up the sky at Big Cedar Lodge

Patriotic Picnic

Dear Neighbors,

We are sorry. Due to COVID-19, our 4th of July event will be restricted to resort guests only this year. Big Cedar has always loved & encouraged the many local area guests to join us during our patriotic picnics while we celebrate our nation’s independence. With the current concern around large gatherings, we have restricted the event to support public safety as this health event continues. We hope to return to our normal event next year and wish you all a safe and healthy Independence Day.

Dear Resort Guests,

We are excited to kick off summer with fun games, inflatables, an air show, live entertainment and more. Come hungry and enjoy a picnic-style All-American menu of mouthwatering foods prepared by Big Cedar’s Culinary Team available on the Swimmin’ Hole Lawn. Prince Ivan will perform live, and dancing is encouraged! Fireworks are set for dusk.
