About the Event

The 4th at Firestone has become not only Firestone’s premier annual community event, but also a regional attraction to celebrate America’s birthday. This event has continued to increase in participation, drawing thousands of people to Firestone for family-oriented fun and entertainment throughout the day.

The festivities begin at 7 a.m. with the American Legion Auxiliary’s pancake breakfast lasting until 9 a.m. This will take place at 870 1st Street, Firestone, CO 80520.  Also the Carbon Valley Park and Recreation District will sponsor the Firecracker 5k that will take runners through a tour of the Carbon Valley communities. Registration for the race is at 7 a.m. and the race will start at 8 a.m. 

The parade weaves its way from Thunder Valley K-8 through Historic Firestone to Miners Park for the celebration. Floats, decorated vehicle displays, marching bands, classic cars, motorcycles and more will compile a parade lineup that residents and festival attendees will not want to miss. This is the perfect time for people to show their American pride by lining the streets in celebration. The festival will include a showcase of business, children, food nonprofit vendors. Free activities will include a climbing wall, bungee trampoline, inflatable jumps, petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, mini golf, horseshoes, games and more. A highlight of the event for the holiday will include the presentation of the colors by the Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District Color Guard and recognition of local veterans. Outstanding live entertainment throughout the day will include a mix of music.

The 4th at Firestone evening event has all kinds of fun music, a beer garden in the park sponsored by the Carbon Valley Chamber of Commerce and local food trucks offering tasty selections. Don't miss a spectacular fireworks display to wrap up a great day of celebration.
