July 4th Schedule Details

8:00am – 9:00am: Free Frisco, Colorado Kids’ Fishing Derby

Registration for the kids’ fishing derby is full.

The free Frisco, Colorado Kids’ Fishing Derby will take place at Meadow Creek Park.

The Frisco Bay Marina rents fishing poles if you do not have your own and is about a three minute drive from Meadow Creek Park. A huge thank you to Colorado Parks and Wildlife for stocking the pond before the fishing derby.

The fishing derby will take place at Meadow Creek Park (828 Meadow Drive, Frisco, CO) from 8:00am – 9:00am. The Town of Frisco partners with Colorado Parks and Wildlife to bring this July 4th fishing derby tradition to kids and their families each year in Frisco. The pond is stocked with fish.

  • This is for youth up to 14 years of age.
  • Kids should bring their own fishing poles. The Frisco Bay Marina does rent fishing poles if you do not have your own. The Marina is open from 8:00am – 7:00pm seven days a week during this time of year so you would need to rent and pick up the day before the event.
  • Bait is not recommended.
  • Catch and release is strongly encouraged. Please de-barb your hooks, as it will make releasing fish much easier and better for them.
  • The top five kids overall who catch the largest fish will receive a prize and have their picture taken for submission to the Summit Daily. Only one prize per child will be awarded for the top five; there will be no age category winners, just overall.
  • There will be a few adult volunteers who are passionate and knowledgeable about fishing at the event to help as needed and to measure fish.
  • Please keep your pets on leash or leave them at home. Rufus wouldn’t like getting a hook in his paw, and splashing dogs make it tough to catch the biggest fish!

8:00am – 11:00am: Team Summit Pancake Breakfast

The traditional Team Summit Pancake Breakfast will take place right off of Main Street in front of the Old Community Center Building at 110 3rd Avenue. Proceeds from the Pancake Breakfast benefit Team Summit – $10 for adults and $5 for kids 8 and under.

Online parade registration is closed. Day of registration will take place beginning at 12:00pm on July 4 at the tent in the parking lot on the west side of Town Hall.

1:00pm: Parade on Main Street

The 4th of July parade will take place on Frisco Main Street from Madison Avenue to Sixth Avenue. Don’t just watch the parade, be a part of the parade with a decorated float, vintage vehicle, or non-motorized parade entry.

Decorated Floats

Back this year – we will have a limited amount of entries available for traditional decorated cars or trailers (no more than 4 vehicles per entry).

Vintage Vehicles

We also welcome those who have vintage vehicles to join the fun and show off your car in this year’s parade (cars must be prior to 1985, no more than 4 cars per entry).


Everyone and everything is welcome in our non-motorized category, as long as it doesn’t have a motor! Including decorated bikes, dressed up dogs, people walking, horses, people on scooters and skateboards, people with cats… as long as it doesn’t have a motor… you get the idea.

Parade Information

  • Handing out candy is encouraged! Confetti or any other materials that are not consumable are not allowed, as cleaning them up is virtually impossible in our beautiful town.
  • Parade route – After checking in at the tent at Main Street and Madison Avenue, all participants will be lined up to begin making their way east down Main Street towards 6th Avenue. At the intersection of Main Street and 6th Avenue, participants will be turning right off Main Street onto a closed block of 6th Avenue to safely exit the parade route.

Frisco Arts and Culture Council $500 Float Stipend

Once again this year, the Frisco Arts and Culture Council will be providing up to eight $500 stipends to create artful and whimsical floats for the Frisco 4th of July parade. The floats may be motorized or non-motorized and must be registered for the Frisco July 4th parade before receiving this cash stipend.

Grant Details

  • Up to eight grants will be awarded to those designs that express a uniquely artful and whimsical approach to celebrating July 4th in Frisco.
  • A simple design description and at least one sketch of the design will be required.
  • Float creators will need to apply for the grant by June 28, 2024.
  • Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis as long as funds are available and designs are uniquely artful and whimsical celebrations of July 4th.
  • Grant recipients must register for the Frisco July 4th parade (above) and participate in the parade.

About North Mississippi Allstars

After 25 years, twelve albums, four GRAMMY® Award nominations, and sold out shows everywhere, North Mississippi Allstars open up their world once again on their thirteenth album, Set Sail, welcoming other family members into the fold.

As legend has it, Luther and Cody Dickinson started the band in 1996 as a loose collective of like-minded second-generation musicians who shared a local repertoire and regional style. Over the years, the lineup shifted by design, and each subsequent record offered up a different combination of collaborators. This time around, they mined the talents of Jesse Williams on bass and Lamar Williams, Jr. on vocals. During the Allman Betts Band Family Revival, the Dickinsons first linked up with Lamar, son of the Allman Brothers bassist Lamar Williams, Sr., becoming fast friends and collaborators and eventually paving the way for their newest album, Set Sail.

*All activities/events included in the 4th of July schedule are subject to change.

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. There are many great ways to celebrate Independence Day in Frisco including 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, and challenging yourself at our free bike park.
