In light of COVID-19 restrictions, this summer the Rose Bowl, America’s Stadium, has decided to go virtual (but not entirely) with its 94th Annual AmericaFest Celebration so Pasadena locals and international fans alike can tune in for the festivities. The online event will also feature a live flyover of Pasadena and its most historic landmarks at the culmination of this free event (see on your screen or outside).


Mount Wilson Observatory is pleased to announce its involvement with the 94th AmericaFest as it features both a musical performance—by cellist Cécilia Tsan—and a daytime light-show (of sorts) thanks to its Sunstar installation (the prismatic moving “star” will be beam all over Pasadena for the next month).

AmericaFest 2020 is dedicated to the United States’ fallen heroes, first responders, and frontline workers, who have demonstrated admirable courage during these difficult last few months. Pat Harvey of CBS will host.

Cello performance by Mount Wilson Observatory’s Cécilia Tsan leading up to vintage aircraft flyover of Pasadena landmarks; Mount Wilson Observatory’s art & science active installation Sunstar. This is a FREE event.
