4th of July in Frisco
If you are looking for an Independence Day in a quintessential and mellow small mountain town, then Frisco will fit the bill. With big town amenities and amazing outdoor opportunities, yet a friendly, small-town feel, Frisco is the ideal place to make 4th of July memories.
Frisco’s fabulous 4th of July celebration will still look a little different in 2021. But back again this summer, three blocks of Frisco Main Street from 2nd Avenue to 5th Avenue will be transformed into a pedestrian and bike only zone with open air dining and shopping and twinkling lights overhead providing more chances to shop and dine with a great view! The Promenade area of Main Street will also feature a variety of family friendly activities during the 4th of July weekend.

Bikes and Barks Parade
Decorate your bike and dress up your dog for the Town of Frisco’s 4th of July “Bikes and Barks” Parade. Created to complement our walkable Main Street Promenade, this parade offers a way for community members (and dogs) to celebrate their independence – Frisco style! Starting at 10:00am on July 4, 2021, the parade will begin in front of the Historic Park and finish at the end of the Promenade at 5th Avenue. For the best viewing, people can grab a spot at one of our great local business patios or parklets, or stand along the Main Street sidewalks.
Parade participants are asked to register below and arrive at the Frisco Historic Park to begin lining up at 9:30am the morning of the 4th. This year, it’s all about getting back to the basics. No judges, categories, or awards – just classic mountain town summer fun.
Please note, only bicycles and pedestrians with dogs will be allowed to register in this year’s parade; motorized vehicles of any kind including motorcycles will not be allowed.

An Old Fashioned Day With Friends and Family
The focus of 4th of July can still be on spending the day celebrating in a simpler, small town way with friends and family this year. That means that the focus will be on backyard BBQs, hikes with family, fishing, getting out on Dillon Reservoir, toasting to our independence at local restaurants, strolling Main Street, trying your hand at disc golfing on our free course, going on a chuck wagon dinner ride, taking a bike ride on over 55 miles of recreation path or on miles of singletrack dirt trails, challenging yourself at our free bike park, and creating unique 4th of July memories by focusing on what you have and can experience.
Traditional Frisco July 4th festivities in previous years have included:
- Pancake Breakfast
- Fishing Derby
- Street Party
- Three Concerts
There will be no 4th of July fireworks.
