The Fourth of July is coming quick — and that means family friends events in the Champaign-Urbana area
This list is comprised of events such as parades, craft days, festivals, fireworks and more. (For your convenience, we have a fireworks-only list coming soon.)
In Champaign-Urbana and beyond, marking Independence Day means more than a week of celebrations. So don’t be surprised to see that a lot of this Fourth of July revelry actually takes place on days other than the actual holiday.
But hey — why limit the celebrations to just one day? That seems to be the mantra throughout East Central Illinois. The best news: many of these events are completely free! Any admission prices are indicated where applicable.
Looking for all fireworks happening near Champaign-Urbana? We have the ultimate fireworks list right here. How about what is open and what is closed on Fourth of July; we have that, too!
Thanks to CU Dentists, Ltd. for presenting this list.
