Thank you to the police officers, City of Edmonds and Town of Woodway for their efforts and work to make this run possible and safe for everyone.


We are having the fireworks show on Sunday, July 4th at 10:00 pm. The sky above Civic Field will light up like never before.  To thank the community and bring back this tradition we are going BIG….  What does that mean?  The show in 2019 consisted of 500 shells, this year we are shooting 900 SHELLS!!!!!!!  Our biggest fireworks show ever.

**As a public safety measure, the Beat Brackett 1K and the Children’s Parade will not happen this year. As there is not yet a vaccine for children younger than 12 and those two events bring thousands of young children together, the Chamber felt it is the safest choice to wait until 2022 when there will hopefully be a vaccine for young children.

A: The 2021 4th of July events are planned pending the approval by Edmonds City Council AND the June 30th complete re-opening of the state, as the Governor has proclaimed. If the events are approved and that date holds true there will be NO restrictions on crowd size, mask-wearing or vaccination confirmation for events like these. The Chamber does not have the capacity to manage mass crowds, mask-wearing or vaccination confirmation. Please only attend these events if you are comfortable with these conditions.
