Fourth of July in   
Glen Ellyn
The Glen Ellyn 4th of July Committee is an independent organization of volunteers who plan the events surrounding the 4th of July festivities.  The Parade is staged to optimize a reflection on our Independence and to honor those who serve, as well as for Glen Ellyn community enjoyment. 

The Committee invites community and local school groups to complete Parade applications online.  The applications will be available in February and close on June 1st each year.  We encourage honor guards, first responders, uniformed representation, musical/band groups, local school representation, and patriotic themed floats to apply.

There are a limited number of spaces available, so early application for the Parade is highly recommended.  There is no guarantee of space availability and entry into the parade is by Committee invitation and acceptance of application.

The parade steps off at 12:00pm on July 4th and is approximately 1½ hours long.  Each year, the Committee votes on a Parade Theme that you can use in your decorating plans.  

If your application has been accepted, look for an email mid-June detailing your staging placement and other important parade information.  If you have questions or need more information please email

Parade Applications for 2019 are now closed.  
Applications for July 4th, 2020 will open in February of 2020.

Staging was emailed out to those who applied and were accepted for this year.

If the parade is canceled due to weather, it will be announced here.  There will not be a make up date.
