Join the celebration by entering the Fourth of July Parade

Concession and general vendors, entertainment and pie entries also sought

Lexington’s Fourth of July parade is one of the city’s largest parades and is a great way to highlight your group, organization or business.

Event organizers are seeking floats, bands and/or musical groups, equestrian entries, youth groups, clubs and more to participate in this year’s parade which will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, July 4, in downtown Lexington.

“We are looking forward to putting on another great parade this year,” said Laura Farnsworth, Senior Event Coordinator for the DLC. “The Fourth of July parade is a true community event so we invite everyone to participate and hope to have many new entries this year.”

Participants have until Friday, June 24, to submit a completed entry form along with the entry fee to the Downtown Lexington Corporation. Applications are available on the DLC’s website at

The annual parade is part of Lexington’s Fourth of July Festival presented by Fifth Third Bank and brought to you by the Downtown Lexington Corporation and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government. The four-day festival also features many family-friendly events including a pie contest, the Bluegrass 10,000, live music, street festival, fireworks and plenty of patriotic fun.
