Commemorative T-Shirts

While you wait for the parade to begin you may want to purchase an annual Julian July 4th 

commemorative T-shirt being sold at locations along Main Street. Each shirt is $20 and proceeds go towards next year's parade. Please help support the Julian 4th of July Parade by purchasing a T-shirt!

(When they sell out they are gone forever)

After the parade, spend the day enjoying other events that day in Julian:

Our parade is quite popular so it is suggested that you arrive early to catch the pre-parade activities that start at 9:30 am. Some parade “goers“ set out chairs the night before to enable them to get a good spot.

Please note that Main Street closes to traffic at 9:00 am. Follow directions to the nearest parking lot. FREE Public toilets are available at the old bank parking lot and behind the town hall.
