2018 - The fun happens on July 4th.
The Tri-Lakes 4th of July celebration is a full day of festivities for the whole family.
The Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce, EDC and Visitor Center presents a street fair from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. It will showcase vendors on both Second and Washington Streets. There will be favorite festival foods, arts and crafts merchants, local businesses, non-profit organizations and more. The Chamber also has a family-friendly beer garden with musicians performing in Limbach Park from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm.
The day begins with a pancake breakfast at 7:00 am at St. Peter Catholic Church. The 4-mile Fun Run begins at 7:00 am at the Palmer Lake Santa Fe Trailhead and ends in Monument in time for the parades. A children's parade begins at 9:30 am, followed by the main parade at 10:00 am, both run by the Monument Hill Kiwanis Club.
Here's your chance to help your community (and us)! We couldn't put on the Street Fair and Beer Garden without the aid of volunteers. We’d love to have your help on July 3, 4 or 5. Call our office at 719-281-2382 to sign up to help or click on the button to volunteer online.
You may register online or on paper. When you register online, you can select and reserve your vendor space and pay for it right then. If you use the paper application, your chosen space is guaranteed upon receipt of your form and check in our office (or you can phone us with your credit card). Your space is not reserved until payment is made. If you want more than one space, call Laura at 719-481-3282.
