4th of July

Fourth of July Festival at McPhelemy Park


Every Fourth of July, Buena Vista, Colorado, transforms into a vibrant festival of patriotic celebrations, attracting locals and tourists alike. Our annual Independence Day festivities kick off with a traditional parade, featuring vintage cars, elaborate floats, local organizations, all draped in red, white, and blue. Post-parade, head over to McPhelemy Park for our vendor festival with live music on our new stage, a beer and wine tent, food trucks, and over 40 vendors to shop from. This year the festival will be held on Tuesday, the 4th of July, from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
