Truckee July 4th Celebrations


We are excited to have several events planned for the 4th of July celebrations in Truckee:

Truckee Parade

The Truckee Chamber of Commerce is presenting the Truckee 4th of July Parade this year with the theme: “There’s No Place Like Home.” Participants will be staging near the Truckee High School and the parade begins at 10am at the west end of town.

The parade will pass one and a half miles along Donner Pass Road, and into historic downtown Truckee. Donner Pass Road will be closed to traffic from 9am, with the parade ending around noon. The Town of Truckee Public Works Department will act as this year's Grand Marshall.

Beginning at 8am, free shuttles will be available in several Truckee neighborhoods to bring people downtown. These shuttles will serve Prosser, Sierra Meadows, Glenshire, Donner Lake, Tahoe Donner and Northstar.

All participants will be encouraged to display their best idea of what makes Truckee the best place to call home.

FireCracker Mile Race

The FireCracker Mile Race is a fundraiser that will support the Auburn Ski Club Training Center scholarship funds. The race will begin at the US Bank and end at downtown Truckee.

Registration begins at 7:30 and races will begin at 9:40am.
