Celebrate Our Nation’s Birthday in Julian

Julian July 4th Parade, 2017

This year Julian salutes July Fourth with the Theme, “Old Glory on Parade”.  Julian honors our nation’s birthday with a salute to the men and women who made our country great, both domestically and militarily.

For more than twenty years, Julian residents, their friends and parade lovers from all over have lined up at on the town’s main street to wave their flags, cheer the marching bands, salute the Marine Color Guard, and carry a giant American Flag down the thoroughfare. Bands include:

  • The Emerald Society Bag Pipe Band
  • Euphoria Brass Band (a great Dixie Land sound)
  • Gold Drum and Bugle Corps
  • Mariachi Continental de San Diego

Dignitaries in our parade include: Grand Marshal, Roger Mudd a POW of the Viet Nam War; County Supervisor, Diane Jacob; Julian’s Honorary Mayor, Joe Thompson; Merchant of the Year, Don Brown; Librarian, Coleen Baker; Veterans from the American Legion; Mr. and Mrs. Apple Days, Keith and Priscilla Webb; David Davis of KUSI and his wife; State Representative, Joel Anderson; and Miss Julian and her court.

Antique cars, vintage tractors, belly dancers, World War 2 Submariners, and several comedy entries will appear to complete a fun well rounded home town parade.
