Fourth of July in Fort CollinsIt wouldn’t be 4th of July without an array of fireworks, festivities and fun for Fort Collins residents! There are plenty of opportunities to celebrate Independence Day with a bang. Whether you’re enjoying a backyard BBQ, running a 5K, watching a parade or enjoying an old-fashioned afternoon on the lawn of historic sites, Fort Collins offers a little something for everyone this holiday.

FireKracker 5K

Start your day early as the FireKracker 5k races towards its 19th anniversary. Whether you run, walk, jog or race, the event includes a casual Citizen’s 5k, an Elite 5k, a Kid’s Race, a $3500 cash purse and other great awards! The first race, the Citizen’s 5k, takes off at 7:30 a.m. and festivities continue through 9:30 a.m.

 4th of July Celebration/Parade

Fort Collins’ annual 4th of July Parade is always the talk of the town! The spectacular fireworks display and community engagement are paired with live music, lots of laughs and plenty of sweets! Follow it up with continued celebrations with the traditional fireworks display over Sheldon Lake at City Park.

Old-Fashioned Fourth of July

Every year on the Avery House lawn, Poudre Landmarks Foundation throws an old-fashioned celebration that coincides with the City of Fort Collins 4th of July Parade. Parade-goers can watch the parade then come to the lawn for continued festivities — including live music, Victorian games and crafts and more from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Independence Day at Greely Stampede

Beginning at 9 a.m. on July 4th wear your red, white and blue as the Independence Day parade starts this fun-filled event. At 4 p.m. the popular demolition derby will take way and at 8 p.m. head into Island Grove Park for a free concert! At approximately 9:30 p.m. fireworks will launch over the park for spectacular displays!
