See the largest 4th of July Parade west of the Mississippi!
The Greeley Stampede Independence Day parade is a traditional event that brings families back year after year. The parade showcases over 120 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 historic 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 Saturday, July 3rd and will be led by this year’s Grand Marshals. We look forward to seeing you along the route.

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.
Greeley’s Culture, Parks and Recreation Department staff will conduct maintenance, including areas along the parade route—City Hall, Lincoln Park, and the Greeley Recreation Center landscapes—up until the close of business Friday, July 2. As such, city officials recommend:
- Refrain from saving any spaces until after 4 p.m. Friday, July 2.
- 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. Because these items impede park staff’s ability to continue with maintenance, they will be removed.
- Do not use any type of paint on the grass, sidewalks, or other hard surfaces to save a spot along the route.
- Use chalk when marking spaces on sidewalks and hard surface areas, but nothing on grassy areas.
