Morgan Hill remains one of the very few cities in the entire Bay Area that continues to have all day events surrounding the 4th of July. Our annual events include the Patriotic Sing, Family Street Dance, Freedom Run, Parade, Freedom Car Cruise and Show finished by a spectacular fireworks and entertainment show entitled Fireworks on the Green.

Celebrated in our historic downtown core, the Community and Cultural Center as well as the Outdoor Sports Center, our six events deliver a spectacular, fun-fill, family set of events every July 4th holiday. The links above will lead you to everything you need to know for each event.

Freedom Fest is truly a hometown celebration dedicated to preserving our national and local heritage and most important, celebrating our freedom as citizens of the United States of America. We are the largest annual event in Morgan Hill, put on entirely by volunteers. The award-winning parade alone is the largest privately organized parade in Northern California and the official 4th of July Parade of Santa Clara County.
