2016 Grand Old 4th of July

Bainbridge Island’s biggest party!

Join us for the 2016 Annual Grand Old 4th of July Parade and Community Celebration on Monday, July 4th, 2016. The 49th Grand Old 4th will include a Pancake Breakfast, all-day Street Fair, foot races (benefiting Bainbridge Youth Services), a Classic Car Show, Live Music, Food, Entertainment, a Beer Garden, and plenty of Family Fun—all capped off by the “Best Small Town Parade in America.” The mile-long parade always begins at 1 p.m. sharp!  We have something new and exciting this year!  We are opening the “Young Artisan Marketplace” for our young and eager entrepreneurs.  If you would like more information, contact Kimberly Watkins.

The Grand Old 4th is produced and presented by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, with the help of dozens of volunteers and a handful of loyal sponsoring businesses. 2016 sponsorships are available here. If you would like to volunteer, contact Mickey Molnaire.

The 4th is on a Monday, and crab season may be open. You can still access the public dock and boat ramp in Waterfront Park, but the presence of the Street Fair will change the options for boat trailer parking, usually available on Bjune Drive. Follow this map to the overflow parking on Shepard Dr NW.
