Special Events

Special events are scheduled regularly at the Irvine Animal Care Center (such as the Super Pet Adoption and Home for the Holidays events), senior centers, the Irvine Fine Arts Center (such as the Studio Arts Festival and Holiday Faire) and the Orange County Great Park. Each year, the City also hosts the Irvine Global Village Festival, a free event featuring international cuisine, live entertainment, a Kids Village with crafts and activities, cultural and religious exhibits, and an international marketplace.

In addition, the Irvine Police Association sponsors an annual fireworks festival on the Fourth of July at the Irvine High School football stadium.

Volunteers are often needed at these events. For more information about volunteer opportunities, please visit our Volunteer Opportunities page for current opportunities.
