Every Independence Day Breckenridge comes alive with patriotism, parties, and the annual Main Street Parade.  It’s a day of celebration that includes athletic competitions, live music, art festivals, family activities, and a few of our favorite small-town traditions.  Finish the day with a performance by the National Repertory Orchestra that’s not to be missed! 

Plans for the traditional, large-scale Independence Day Celebration on Main Street are under review due to ongoing public safety concerns surrounding large groups of people.  Potential smaller scale alternatives are currently under review.  Please check back here for updated information.  Thank you for understanding.
