Grinnell On The Fourth

Fourth of July Festivities

Sunday, July 4, 2021

Line Up: 3:30PM
Parade Begins: 5:00PM
Fireworks Begin: Dusk at Ahrens Park

The Grinnell Area Chamber of Commerce announces that community-loved traditions will be returning for the 2021 Fourth of July holiday. Both the parade and fireworks show will be held on Sunday, July 4.

Volunteers are needed to help make this year's parade a success! If you or your organization are interested in helping, please call the Chamber at 641-236-6555.

Nominations for the parade’s Grand Marshal are also being accepted from now until June 13th. To nominate an individual or group for recognition as the 2021 grand marshal, please click here. Registrations for floats are now being accepted. Click here to sign up.

Lineup will start at 3:30PM on Hamilton Avenue, directly east of Davis Elementary. Due to road closures as a result of road construction, the route has been modified slightly. Pending final city council approval, the parade route will head north on Broad Street, turn right on 4th Avenue, and then head north on Park Street. From there, the route will turn right on 10th Ave towards Penrose, and then head south on Penrose where floats will exit to the Grinnell College/Bayer parking lot.

The City of Grinnell has assumed management of the fireworks show which will again be held at Ahrens Park (1510 Penrose St) at dusk on the 4th of July.
