Independence Day Parade

The Greeley Stampede Independence Day parade is a traditional event that brings families back year after year. The parade showcases over 120 entries and attracts tens of thousands of eager spectators. Floats, bands and equestrian entries from all over Colorado and many surrounding states come together to celebrate our Nation’s Independence and Colorado’s Western heritage. The parade runs north along historic 10th Avenue starting amidst the beautiful University of Northern Colorado campus at 19th Street and ending on 5th Street beyond historic Lincoln Park. The parade kicks off at 9 a.m. sharp on Saturday, July 3rd and will be led by this year’s Grand Marshals. We look forward to seeing you along the route.
