Old Monterey's 2021 4th of July Parade Canceled

Old Monterey

Covid-19 restrictions are definitely lessening as we move towards a more "normal" situation in California. Unfortunately, we don't feel confident bringing 20,000 people together quite yet. Consequently, we will not be hosting a Fourth of July Parade in 2021.

With that said, the Old Monterey Business Association is already looking forward to next year with marching bands, floats, and the whole array of community groups and supporters coming together for Independence Day 2022! We wish everyone a safe, sane, and healthy 4th of July.
