Frisco July 4th Celebration

LODGING

July 4th

If you are looking for an Independence Day celebration in a quintessential small mountain town, then Frisco’s Fabulous 4th of July will fit the bill with big town amenities and great entertainment, but a small town feel. Frisco knows how to throw a party filled with activities for the whole family on Frisco’s charming Main Street and at the beautiful Frisco Bay Marina.

An Old Fashioned Day With Friends and Family

The focus for Frisco’s 2019 Fabulous 4th of July celebrations will be on spending the day celebrating in a simpler small town way with friends and family.
Start the day off right with a pancake breakfast. In between you will find: a hometown parade with a kids’ bike decorating contest, great concerts, a block party feel on Main Street and even a free fishing derby for the kids sponsored by the Town of Frisco and Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

A New Tradition

This year, 4th of July celebrations in Frisco will end with a concert at the Frisco Bay Marina from 5:30pm-7:30pm, and the time after that will be yours to spend with family and friends making your own July 4th fun.
This is a departure from past years, when Frisco has ended the night with a fireworks display. Ongoing concerns about traffic, crowd and parking management and the subsequent the ability of first responders to reach emergencies, as well as persistent fire danger, forced Frisco to cancel fireworks and focus on creating new traditions.
We encourage you to enjoy this time and to make new memories with friends and family at your own BBQ or at one of Frisco’s great restaurants.

Parade

The Frisco Fabulous 4th of July parade is a laid back way to celebrate Independence Day. The parade starts at 12:30pm on July 4th on Frisco’s Main Street beginning at Madison Avenue and Main Street and heading east (towards the Frisco Bay Marina). You’ll likely see whacky floats, beautiful horses, classic cars, hundreds of kids on decorated bikes… all with a backdrop of mountains in every direction. If you are looking for a classic July 4th parade in a quintessential mountain town, then Frisco is the place for you. And the day doesn’t begin or end with the parade- check out our full schedule of 4th of July events.

Parade Information

The 4th of July Parade is a great way to support the community and there is no entry fee. Register online for the 2019 Frisco Independence Day parade with the form below. Day of registration will begin on the July 4 at 11:00am in the parking lot on the west side of Town Hall, but we encourage you to register in advance.

WHO CAN BE PART OF THE PARADE?

Anyone who wants to decorate a float and be part of the fun. In 2019, Frisco wants to make the parade extra special and is requiring that anyone in the parade decorate whatever vehicle, bike, float… they enter.

WHEN IS THE PARADE AND WHERE DO WE LINE UP FOR THE START?

  • The parade will begin promptly at 12:30pm.
  • Participants should be lined up on Madison Avenue north of Main Street by 12:15pm (you may begin to line up as early as 10:15am on July 4).
  • Insider hint – it is often easier to lineup by approaching from Creekside Drive as the parade does backup onto Creekside Drive pre-parade and Main Street and Madison Avenue are quite busy.

WHERE DO FLOATS CHECK IN?

Once you are lined up on the street, please check in at parade registration tent, located in the Town Hall parking lot at the corner of Main Street and Madison Avenue. This is where you will sign waivers and receive your parade numbers, which qualifies you for parade judging and prizes.

PARADE RULES

  • The maximum height for any float in the parade is 14 ft.
  • Spectator safety is major concern during the parade. As a parade participant you are required to use extreme caution when providing spectators with candy or giveaways from your float. You are required to hand, NOT throw, candy to spectators.
  • In an effort to keep the Town of Frisco streets and sidewalks clean, no participant of the parade shall throw, cast or drop confetti, decorative items or articles of trash during the parade. Any violation of this could result in a $500 clean up fee.

PARADE PRIZES

For 2019, the Town of Frisco will be awarding trophies and cash prizes.

  • Best Decorated Overall Float (1st $500, 2nd $300 and 3rd $200)
  • Best Decorated Business Float (1st $300, 2nd $200 and 3rd $100)
  • Best Decorated Non-Profit Float (1st $300, 2nd $200 and 3rd $100)
  • Best Decorated Wildcard Float (1st $300, 2nd $200 and 3rd $100)

PARADE REGISTRATION

Pre-registration for the 2019 4th of July parade is open. If you are interested in joining the parade, fill out the form below and hit submit to register. Registration will close on July 3 at 5:00pm. You will still be able to register on July 4th at the registration tent located on the west side of Town Hall between 10:30am and 12:00pm.

History

HISTORY

The first official state BBQ challenge was held in Frisco, Colorado in 1993, with only 12 teams – split almost 50-50 between Frisco-area professional and amateur chefs. During the first few years, the event was held in the Historic Park eventually growing to encompass two blocks of Main Street.  Now in its 25th year, our event extends over six blocks of Main Street and can attract over 30,000 people.
Over the past 22 years the Town of Frisco has partnered with six non-profits to put on the event and has raised over $800,000 for those organizations.  The BBQ Challenge creates an outlet for other local non-profits to raise funds for their organization. For the 2018 BBQ Challenge the Town of Frisco is partnering with Mountain Mentors, the Summit County Restaurant Association, the Summit County Chamber of Commerce, High Country Conservation, Advocates for Victims of Assault and Women of the Summit.
The Colorado BBQ Challenge is a Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS)-sanctioned competition.  KCBS sanctions BBQ and Grilling competitions across the U.S. and promotes barbeque as America’s cuisine.  In addition, KCBS has an extensive Certified Barbeque Judging program.  It is the largest society of barbeque enthusiasts in the world.  Winners of the Colorado BBQ Challenge in Frisco are eligible to compete in the American Royal – the “World Series” of Barbecue.
