Independence Day Parade & Cookout

July 4 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00pm on day 4 of July, repeating indefinitely

You haven’t experienced the Fourth of July until you’ve sat in front of the Phineas Swann Bed and Breakfast and watched the Montgomery July 4th Parade. It’s one of the best Independence Day activities in Vermont.

It’s small-town U.S.A. at its finest, with floats, music, children, flags, candy and fun. Watch this tradition from the front of our historic inn, and then follow the parade down to the Town of Montgomery annual barbecue at our recreation fields. You’ll get a great grilled meal for a song, with the proceeds benefiting the town’s volunteer fire department. The entire event will restore your faith in America.

And with the 4th on a Saturday this year, it’s the perfect excuse to make a three-day weekend of either Friday-Saturday-Sunday or Saturday-Sunday-Monday. Whichever suits you better!

The parade starts at noon and runs right in front of the Phineas Swann. It ends at the Recreation Center Park, where you can purchase a barbecue chicken dinner for $10 to support the Montgomery Fire Department, and then enjoy a free live concert from 1-4 p.m.
