Monday July 4th, 2022

“Freedom and Fireworks”

Even visitors feel at home and full of patriotism when they celebrate the 4th of July in Southern Utah! Listen bright and early at 6:00 AM for the cannons as they Blast Off!, awakening the whole town for the days festivities. Soon after, join in on a Color Fun Run 5K starting at the church in the center of town at 7:00AM.

Starting at 7 AM, breakfast will be served at the State Bank of Southern Utah parking lot as a fundraiser by the ESports Team from the Kanab High School.

Then, at 10 AM join the town on Center Street for a parade you’ll have the chance to see twice, as the parade turns around at the end of the street, only to end just where it began! This year’s theme is “Freedom and Fireworks”. Also, Mark Kuehnel will be live streaming the parade for anyone not able to attend!

After the parade, find yourself at Jacob Hamblin Park for vendors, entertainment, and many more festivities throughout the day and into the evening.

Fill out your parade application ahead of time. Print it out and bring it in to the Visitor’s Center or email it to events@kane.utah.gov.  4th Parade Application

Take a minute to look over the parade rules and make sure it’s a safe and fun event for everyone.

Apply to be a Vendor during this event today! We would love to have many different food, drink and art/craft vendors.

Once the sun sets and the bands are through playing, prepare yourself for one of the most unique firework shows you have ever seen! Fireworks shoot off overhead at Jacob Hamblin park, illuminating the red cliffs while sending echoes all throughout the town.

Celebrate Independence day in small town USA and we’re sure you’ll return again, and again! Will you join us in celebrating?

Please make yourself aware of Utah State Firework Laws and Kanab City Firework Laws before you celebrate with your own firework display. Thank you!

Fireworks can be an exciting way to celebrate. Fireworks need to be treated with respect and care. With the drier than normal spring this year the area has experienced an increase in fire potential, all vegetation will easily ignite and spread fire rapidly!
