The Noblesville Fourth of July Parade and Fireworks Festival is a family-friendly tradition that dates back to 1997. The day begins with the annual Fourth of July Parade with the honorary grand marshal, Mayor John Ditslear, state representatives, community businesses and organizations, local youth sports teams, public safety vehicles and others traveling through downtown Noblesville. Afterwards, the fun continues at the Fireworks Festival at Noblesville High School with live music, games, inflatables, food and other entertainment and activities. The holiday concludes with the fireworks show lighting up the nighttime sky that guests can view right from the festival. 
The entire event is geared around the family - making memories, spending time together and celebrating our great country's history and heritage. Thanks to all of our sponsors and donations from local businesses and individuals that fund 100% of the costs, the event free of charge to all attendees.

VolunteersThe biggest challenge that the Noblesville Fourth of July Festival Planning Committee faces each year is finding enough volunteers to staff the festival and parade. The city is seeking organizations, businesses and individuals that would like to assist with inflatables or carnival games. Each organization is able to adopt as many stations as they believe can fill with volunteers from 6 to 10 p.m. Organizations can wear matching T-shirts or volunteer vests.

A hospitality tent will provide food and drinks for volunteers in addition to organizations earning in-kind trade or discounted rates for facility rentals. Organizations volunteering with at least 10 volunteers and reaching 20 hours of service can earn a free 4-hour court or shelter rental. To volunteer or for more information, contact or call (317) 770-5750.

In order to keep the activities and entertainment free, the Planning Committee must raise approximately $33,000 each year.  Tax money is not used for this budget; instead, all of the money used to pay for the entertainment, activities, and fireworks display is raised through sponsorships and donations. The Noblesville July 4th Planning Committee is still raising money to pay for this year’s festivities.
We would appreciate your support in becoming a donor or sponsor of this year’s Noblesville Fourth of July festivities. Many sponsorship opportunities are available from levels ranging from $250 - $10,000. To learn more about our sponsors, click here.
