Pittsfield 4th of July Parade

The parade begins at 10 a.m. on  July 4th and follows its traditional route, beginning on South Street at the Housatonic Street intersection, proceeding  up North Street and ending at Wahconah Park on Wahconah Street.

The Pittsfield 4th of July parade is consistently one of the single most highly attended, participatory and entertaining events in the region and was listed by USA Today as one of the top ten 4th of July events in the country.

This year’s parade theme is The Berkshires: Past, Present, and Future.

Remember, the parade proceeds RAIN or SHINE!

Parade Committee Meeting

The Pittsfield 4th of July Parade Committee is looking for volunteers to help make the July 4th Parade bigger and better than ever.

While the exciting event occurs on a single day, the planning, preparation and fundraising takes nearly a whole year.

We meet monthly throughout the year, and weekly as we get closer to July 4th,  and hope that more people will take an interest in helping us bring this historic event to the city.

Upcoming Meetings in 2019:

March 20th, April 17th, May 1st, May 8th, May 15th, May 29th, June 5th, June 12th, June 19th, July 3rd

The parade committee meets at the Polish Falcon Club, 32 Bel Air Avenue in Pittsfield at 7pm.
