Totally Boise's Guide to Celebrating Fourth of July in The Treasure Valley

Last updated June 22, 2021 by Mariah Hebbeln

As fellow Boiseans, we are excited to join the community and celebrate our nation’s 246th year of Independence with all of you. This year, July 4th falls on a Monday, which means you can spend the weekend rejoicing in patriotic cheer. 

While we are sad to learn that the classic Fourth of July parade is not occurring this year in downtown Boise, we thank the We The People 4th of July Celebration Committee and volunteers who organized such an amazing Boise tradition for over 20 years.  

There is no shortage of fun, family-friendly, and freedom celebrating events happening all over the Treasure Valley this holiday weekend. If you’re looking for parades, contests, events, and firework shows, we’ve found what’s happening near you!

Boise 4th of July 

Boise and the surrounding Treasure Valley is an active and bustling community. A long holiday weekend like this Fourth of July means we are going to be outside, in the sun, having as much fun as possible.
