July 4th, 2021 Parade Information for New Fairfield Residents

The parade is just days away and it’s shaping up to be another great event in the town of New Fairfield with about 40 different groups participating this year!!

This year’s parade follows the same parade route as 2019 and previous years. The parade procession will start on Route 37 in front of the Sr. Center parking lot and proceed south to Route 39, then turn right (west) onto Route 39 and continue past New Fairfield Town Hall at which point parade participants will be directed to turn right into Memorial Field for the July 4th ceremony. Everyone is invited to Memorial Field after the parade to enjoy the ceremony. 

The parade starts promptly at 9:30am. The police will perform a ‘soft close’ of the streets at 8:45am and a ‘hard close’ at 9:00am with police and/or barriers at the following locations;

  • The intersection of Route 37 and Route 39

  • Route 37 at Beaver Bog Road

  • Route 37 at Sawmill Road

  • Route 39 at Barnum Road

After 9:00am only parade participants will be allowed to have vehicles on Route 37 and 39 inside the barriers so plan to arrive before 9:00am 

For Participants with youth groups that will have parents drop of their children to march in the parade. In previous years, some parents look to park along Route 37 or wait with their car alongside the parade line-up until the head (Adult) of the participant group arrives. This is not a ‘road safe’ practice, it can lead to a dangerous situation since there are still vehicles moving along route 37 until 8:45am, and it also leads to vehicle congestion along Route 37 creating delays for other participants trying to line up promptly. Adults who are leading youth group participants should arrive early so parents dropping off kids do not have to wait. Parents dropping off kids can also park in one of the parking lots at Route 37 and 39 and walk children to their participant line-up spot, or beginning at 8:00am you can use the shuttle bus that runs back and forth from the Department of Education building across from Town Hall, and Croix Hill Road at Route 37 which is at the middle of the parade line-up order. 

Thank you again for your participation and cooperation, looking forward to another successful, fun and safe parade we can all enjoy!!

Best regards,

New Fairfield Lions Club
