4th of July Celebration
The Celebration is ON!
With the recent release of Governor Walz's Executive Order 21-21 and 21-23 and the loosening of COVID-19-related capacity and distancing restrictions, we are now planning for a full-scale 4th of July Celebration.
Events will be held at City Center Park in downtown Chanhassen and Lake Ann Park.
Join us July 2-4 for the annual carnival, food and beverages, kids' activities, parade, street dance and more.
A preliminary schedule of events can be found below. A full event schedule, maps, and other important information will be posted to this page in the coming weeks. The parade float application will also be posted on this page when it is available.
Chanhassen's annual celebration is the subject of many conversations throughout the year. Participation levels top 70,000 over the course of the 3-day celebration. There is simply no better place to be on the 4th of July than in Chanhassen!
