For over 20 years, one of Morgan Hill’s most popular Independence Day events has been the downtown street dance on the evening of July 3. The dance starts after the Patriotic Sing, which will be held at Morgan Hill’s Downtown Amphitheatre, and for many people, it marks the beginning of Morgan Hill’s 4th of July celebrations. Join us for a fun-filled evening of live music and dancing, food and drinks.
Morgan Hill residents are fortunate to enjoy freedom, amber waves of grain, fruited plains, and an Independence Day celebration that has taken place since 1876. Whether its hearing “The Stars and Stripes Forever” while watching the fireworks or turning up the radio during the traditional family BBQ, music is an essential part of how Americans celebrate Independence Day. Each year we bring some of Morgan Hill’s best bands to perform at the Family Street Dane.
For the last 18 years, the Family Street Dance chairman, Dennis Dal Poggetto, along with co-chairs Manny and Steve Padilla, have organized this fantastic event. Kimberlee Boggiano is the overall volunteer coordinator for 50-60 volunteers, while Pam Blunden organizes approximately 25 logistic volunteers to pull this complicated and amazing event together for our enjoyment.
There is a beer and wine grotto tent where beverages are available for purchase. The beer and wine sales is one of our limited fundraising opportunities to support the free fireworks. So, please help us support this event – buy beverages and drink responsibly!
The Morgan Hill Freedom Fest committee thanks you for your continued support and wishes you a fun-filled, safe and rockin’ holiday!
