Julian Fourth of July Parade


Celebrate Our Nation’s Birthday in Julian

Julian’s Star Spangled 4th, 2018

This year Julian salutes July Fourth with the Theme, “ Julian’s Star Spangled 4th”.  Julian honors our nation’s birthday with a salute to the men and women who made our country great, both domestically and militarily.

For more than twenty years, Julian residents, their friends and parade lovers from all over have lined up at on the town’s main street to wave their flags, cheer the marching bands, salute the Marine Color Guard, and carry a giant American Flag down the thoroughfare. Bands include:

  • The Emerald Society Bag Pipe Band
  • Euphoria Brass Band (a great Dixie Land sound)
  • Gold Drum and Bugle Corps
  • Mariachi Continental de San Diego

Antique cars, vintage tractors, belly dancers, World War 2 Submariners, and several comedy entries will appear to complete a fun well rounded home town parade.
