Santa Clarita Vally Annual Fourth of July Parade

Starts 9 a.m. in Old Town Newhall.

Come cheer on your friends and neighbors at the annual Santa Clarita Valley Fourth of July Parade.

Presented by the volunteer Fourth of July Parade Committee the parade is an old-time celebration of everything good in the SCV.

The theme for this year’s parade is “The Freedom to Play: Celebrating Our Parks, Trails and Open Space.”

Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Striplin will be the Grand Marshal of the parade, demonstrating the city’s commitment to enriching the lives of residents with parks, trails and open space.

The city of Santa Clarita has more than 13,000 acres of dedicated public use open space, 38 public parks and 43 trails covering nearly 300 miles.

The parade starts at 9 a.m. at the Newhall roundabout in Old Town Newhall. The parade will make its way north on Main Street, west onto Lyons Avenue in front of the Newhall Library, and then north onto Orchard Village Road, ending at Dalbey Drive.

The first officially sponsored Fourth of July Parade was held in 1932, which makes 2024 the 92nd annual parade. However, in some years the parade has been cancelled, as it was during WWII and the recent pandemic.
