A Virtual Fourth of July Celebration
Jul 4 all-day

You don’t need to leave your back yard to be part of Golden’s traditional Independence Day celebration! Since we can’t come together for the big festival or host a live fireworks show, the Golden Lions Club is bringing it to you – virtually – for a July 4th community party with digital ways to participate.

The Golden Lions are partnering with local eateries and breweries in the community for a day of fine food. Order the “Lions Special” (locations will be updated on the Golden Lions Facebook page) and receive your own 4th of July swag bag! If you’re out and about downtown, keep an eye out for volunteers wearing the signature yellow Lions vest — the club will be passing out goodies on Saturday, July 4th as well. Watch Facebook LIVE as they have events coming to you from various parts of town, comedian clips, and live music segments. Sponsored contests will include ‘Most Patriotic Pet’, ‘Best Home Face Painting’, and more.

You’ll even get a fireworks show! At 8 p.m., the Golden Lions will broadcast, in conjunction with the City of Golden, a previous Golden fireworks show on social media, Channel 8, and GCO.TV (now available on Roku, and Apple TV)!

4th of July Celebration

The Golden Lions Club is hosting their annual 4th of July Festival in Lions Park on Sunday, July 4th. Gates open at 1 p.m. so get there in time to claim your picnic spot! There will be plenty of food for purchase for all appetites, and beer provided by Golden City Brewery and Coors to wash it all down. Wine and non-alcoholic drinks will also be available for purchase. Music starts at 3 p.m. and continues until the fireworks show at approximately 9:30 p.m. (weather permitting). All raffle and festival proceeds go to support the work that the Lions Club does in the community throughout the year. Due to public health concerns, there will be NO kiddie rides or bouncy castles this year, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of fun.

Parking near the festival is extremely limited. The 8th, 9th and 10th Street neighborhood will be closed to through traffic and festival parking. Plan to park downtown in the public garages on Jackson Street, at the public lot at 311 10th Street, or ride your bike down.

Remember that all fireworks are ILLEGAL in the city limits of Golden, so leave the fireworks to the professionals. You can view the fireworks show from anywhere along the creek path, near Lions Park, and the Golden History Park.
