Annual Ann Arbor 4th of July Parade hosted by the Ann Arbor Jaycees

Ann Arbor Fourth of July Parade


In 1991, Ann Arbor hosted the first Fourth of July Parade in coordination with the City of Ann Arbor and community leaders. 

In 1993, the City of Ann Arbor approached the Jaycees and asked them to take over the planning of the Annual 4th of July Parade, which was just in its third year. The Jaycees accepted the challenge and managed to pull it off with only a few months of organizing. 2020 will be the 30th year for the Fourth of July Parade.
