Welcome to the Canby Independence Day Celebration!

Canby Independence Day Celebration will be held on Tuesday, July 4th, 2017 in downtown Canby. This small-town, family-friendly event is coordinated by the City of Canby’s Main Street Program with support from community volunteers and sponsorships from local businesses.

The event you have loved for years just keeps getting better. Here are the highlights that 2017 has in store:

  • In an effort to be more family friendly the parade will start at 10:00am. This earlier time will help address challenges with the heat that has plagued the event in years past.
  • We have a new and improved Car Show area, which will be located in the parking lots on NW 1st Avenue to showcase local businesses and the beautification efforts completed in recent years.
  • New events we are featuring this year include a larger kid’s events zone, arcade truck for teens, a local beer garden and more.

We hope that you include the Independence Day Celebration and Canby in your Independence Day plans! Better yet, bring your family and friends. You will be glad you did. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event – it’s will be a great success!
