We’re back!

After a one-year hiatus, your Atwater 4th of July Festival is back! We are very grateful to be moving past the unprecedented times we have all been through and are excited like never before to return to our small-town America, 4th of July celebration!
All our traditional festivities are back on again, but we are of course making some modifications to allow for more free space, and to ease congestion in accordance with the evolving state guidelines for outdoor events. The event schedule includes:

July 3rd
Independence Eve Concert/Beer Gardens from 6PM to 10PM at Ralston Park (Free entrance)

July 4th
Run for Independence running event starting at 7:30AM
Downtown Parade starting at 9AM
Festival at Ralston Park from 9 to 4PM
Concert/Fireworks Show at the Castle Airport/Commerce Center starting at 6PM ($10 fee per car)

As excited as we are to be back, we cannot stress enough how critical the need is for your donations. Costs on everything are way up this year, and our ability to fundraise has been very limited. Our 501©4 organization needs your support to stay afloat, so we invite everyone to click the link below to read about our “sponsorship” levels, and/or to make a donation. This community has supported Atwater 4th of July for nearly 60 years, and we are confident that with your continued support, this will be a safe, fun, and successful celebration like none other!
