Intersection of Carroll Avenue and Ethan Allen Avenue

On Tuesday July 4th, join Takoma Park for one of the community's oldest and most beloved traditions: Takoma Park's 134th Annual 4th of July Day Parade. The parade includes a mix of musical groups, community organizations, elected officials, advocacy, and other community projects -- capturing all the energy, diversity, uniqueness, and extraordinary eclectic passions of the Takoma Park community. This year's parade will be led by Grand Marshal Congressman Jamie Raskin, who was selected to represent the theme, Celebrating Democracy in Takoma Park.
