SUNDAY, July 5th in Crozet, Va.

Come join our annual old-fashioned, small town, Independence Day celebration.

The Fifth Annual Crozet Independence Day Parade, Celebration, and Fireworks on SUNDAY, July 5th.  

The Crozet Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD) parade starts at 5:00 PM at Crozet Elementary School and goes down Crozet Avenue through downtown Crozet to Claudius Crozet Park.  

The Parade Grand Marshals are the lifetime members of the CVFD. The Richmond Shriners’ ACCA Mini-Patrol cars are one of the many entries in the parade who’s theme is “Stars and Stripes Forever”.

There is still time to submit your entry to be in the parade! Submit it as soon as possible to ensure you are included in the lineup.  Lineup will be based on a first come basis.  Horses/livestock will be placed near or at the end of the parade.  Lineup will begin at 4:00 P.M. at Crozet Elementary School and end at Claudius Crozet Park.  There will be field judging for Fire and Rescue apparatus at Claudius Crozet Park after the parade. Awards will be presented around 7:15 P.M.

If you would like to be a part of the 2015 Crozet Fireman’s parade please go to: for details and access to the Parade Entry Form.

The celebration begins at Claudius Crozet Park after the parade, where there will be live music by local band, LockJaw and Mark Garwood will MC the event.  There will be free children’s games and amusements, including six bounce-houses, slides and laser tag.  There will be pony rides  and the Crozet Fireman will play the Peachtree League coaches in kickball!

Bring a lawn chair if you want to be comfortable as you watch the events.
Traditional American Fourth of July fare will be available, including pork barbecue, hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, popcorn, sno-cones, smoothies, and more. Starr Hill beer and Bold Rock Cider will also be available.

Event culminates at 9:30 PM with a stupendous fireworks show. (We have it at 9:30 PM so it’s late enough to be dark, but not too late to for the youngsters to view the show.)

All we ask is a donation of $3 per person (children 12 and under are free) to help pay for the fireworks and event expenses.  The Crozet Volunteer Fire Department will be the main recipient of any money raised above the cost of the event, so please be generous.
