See the largest 4th of July Parade west of the Mississippi!
The Greeley Stampede 4th of July parade is a traditional event that brings families back year after year. The parade showcases over 130 entries and attracts tens of thousands of eager spectators. Floats, bands and equestrian entries from all over Colorado and many surrounding states come together to celebrate our Nation’s Independence and Colorado’s Western heritage. The parade runs north along 10th Avenue starting amidst the beautiful University of Northern Colorado campus at 19th Street and ending on 5th Street beyond historic Lincoln Park.
The parade kicks off at 9 a.m. sharp on Tuesday, July 4th and will be led by this year’s Grand Marshals.
We look forward to seeing you along the route. Curbside seating is first-come-first-served.
The City of Greeley Culture, Parks and Recreation Department is reminding residents and visitors of their guidelines on when and how to save a spot to enjoy the 4th of July Parade.
The Parks Division will be conducting maintenance, including areas along the parade route, up until Wednesday, July 3. As such, their recommendations are:
- Refrain from saving any spaces until after 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3.
- Do not place any kind of tape, strings attached to stakes, tarps, plastic, or blankets on the grass, sidewalks, or other hard surfaces. They become tripping hazards and cause damage to grass and solid surfaces. These items will be removed as they impede Park staffs’ ability to continue with maintenance.
- Do not use any type of paint on sidewalks or other hard surfaces to save a spot along the route.
You may use chalk instead when marking spaces on sidewalks and hard surfaces, but nothing on the grassy areas.
