Ashland’s Old-Fashioned 4th of July Mission Statement:

The mission of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce’s Old-Fashioned 4th of July Celebration is to create and operate a long-standing historic Ashland tradition to celebrate our country’s independence, freedom and liberty through this annual event. The Celebration includes the parade, park activities, family activity zone, live music and fireworks – all being meant for a family-friendly audience and to embrace community building by promoting a welcoming atmosphere for all individuals through encouragement and acceptance of one another without judgment or exclusion as to differences in race, sexual orientation, religion, or political affiliation. This is something we embody with each of our events throughout the year. Each year for the Old-Fashioned 4th of July Celebration, our Planning Committee selects a unique theme to honor in the Parade and through our Grand Marshal(s). Local Dignitaries and Veterans are also honored. All Participants must adhere to this mission when in our event permit areas.

2019 Parade Theme“Celebrating 50-years of Friendship”

The 2019 4th of July Celebration is honoring the 50-years of Sister City friendship between Guanajuato, Mexico and Ashland, Oregon.

We are excited to honor this lifelong friendship between two cities and two countries marked by the people-to-people connections that embrace peace, understanding and acceptance of different cultures and ways of life without judgment, but with joy in honoring our differences and sharing our common values. We invite Parade Entries to embrace the theme of “Friendship.” Ashland is built upon relationships with one another and friendship is at the forefront of this historic relationship.
