2021 Fourth of July Celebration 


Join us for Glendale's Fourth of July Celebration at Kletzsch Park on Independence Day. All are welcome to this free, family-friendly event. This year the parade starts at 3pm and marches North on Milwaukee River Parkway (between Parkway Elementary School and Green Tree Road.) A food truck festival featuring a large selection of entrees, snacks, and desserts will occur from 4pm to 9pm. The LoveMonkeys perform from 6pm to 9pm. The grand fireworks display will happen at dusk.  Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. A Covid Preparedness Plan is in effect.  Learn more at https://www.glendale4thofjuly.com/.

If you are coming to Glendale's Fourth of July Celebration...

⚠️We have created a Passenger DROP OFF/ PICK UP area for Uber & Lyfts - Mill Rd. East of Green Bay Ave. (Follow the blue arrows on the map below)! There will be wayfinding signage to follow. Note: vehicles must enter from Fairfield Ct.

🛑Cars MAY NOT STOP along Green Bay Ave to drop off guest attendees! This is for the safety of all attendees and officers. There will be a fence blocking access to the festival along Green Bay Ave.

♿️Those needing ADA parking, please talk to one of the police officers directing traffic at the park. Other parking can be found along city streets that have not been blocked off or display "No Parking Signs"

🚴‍♂️We highly encourage biking, walking and carpooling to Kletzsch Park.

Again, see the map for passenger drop off! 

Above all, BE PATIENT, there will be thousands of attendees at the event!

Thank you for your cooperation! We can't wait to celebrate our Independence Day!
