For the 66th consecutive year, we celebrate our independence with a wild, wacky, and wickedly fun parade, street dance, and family festivities! Parade starts at 10 AM. Main Street in Warren closes at 8:30am SHARP.
Grand Marshals are the volunteer emergency service personnel of the Warren, Moretown and Waitsfield-Fayston Fire Departments as well as the MRV Ambulance Service.
The Theme, in keeping with the honoring of our emergency services is "Patriots-ACT!"
Free Shuttle Buses are running from 8am until 4pm. Satellite parking for bus pick up is at Yestermorrow School on Rt 100 at Warren/Waitsfield town line and at Lincoln Peak at Sugarbush.
Food Vendors are lined up, including local organic food providers like American Flatbread, Gaylord Farm, Skinny Pancake, and annual favorites, SamosaMan, Pakistani Foods, Connie's Catering, Flip Bar Smoothies and the Yak Cart. Mad Taco will host a beer and wine garden at Brooks Field (Elementary School field) following the parade.
Live Music will begin following the parade- with Dave Grippo Funk Band at the Warren Store porch for the big street dance and Mad Mountain Scramblers at Brooks Field (elementary school), a short walk from the village.
Kids' Fun: Free, supervised kids' activities at Brooks Field following the parade at the elementary school. Use the Warren village path from the village to the school. Events, food and music begin following the parade and last until the energy wanes. Though it never "wanes" on the 4th of July!
Find your Buddy and win a matching pair of prizes! In order to make the day's events free to all (parade, dance, shuttle bus, kids' activities) we ask for a donation of $1 or more at the gates to town. For your $1 donation you will receive a Buddy Badge numbered between 1-3000. Every badge has a match....somewhere in Warren. Find your buddy and run to the Gazebo in the village and get a pair of matching prizes donated by local merchants (while they last!). It may be a ski pass or it may be an cupcake. You'll just have to see how lucky you are!
The Parade Boss strongly discourages bringing dogs to the parade. Please leave them home (not in the car) for the day. They won't have nearly as much fun as you at the parade. If you MUST bring a dog, please supply adequate water and keep them leashed at all times.
Sponsors: The event could not be made possible without the generous support of the taxpayers of Warren, along with these corporate sponsors: Waitsfield-Fayston Telephone Company, Sugarbush Resort, Mad River Glen, Valley Rotary Club, Casella Waste Services, Jamieson Insurance and Building Performance Services.
Events continue at Sugarbush all afternoon culminating with Fireworks at dark. There is no vendor space available for 2014. Questions should be directed HERE, or call 802-496-3409.
