Vail America Days 4th of July Celebration

Jul. 2, 2012

Everything you need to know about what’s happening in Vail for the 4th of July, or as we call it, “Vail America Days”.

4th of July Parade passing through Vail Village

10am: The Vail community parade is a longstanding local tradition with acts like the Precision Lawn Chair Demonstration Team – a Vail staple since 1984. The route begins in Golden Peak and ends in Lionshead (see map at the bottom of the page). This year’s theme is “Team America” – a celebration of Vail’s connection to the athletes that are competing in the Summer Olympics in London this year.

2pm: “America the Beautiful Concert” featuring the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The concert will be held in Gerald Ford Amphitheater. Lawn seats are free but fill up fast so make sure to get there early.

12-4pm: head to Lionshead for the kids’ fun zone, featuring arts and crafts, games, challenges and a Kids Poetry Contest.


1-10pm: Enjoy live music, food vendors and the Sam Adams Beer Garden in Vail Village’s Solaris Plaza. Special performance by the 101st Division Army band.
