The Pottstown Fourth of July Parade is back!

The Rotary Club of Pottstown is proud to be organizing and sponsoring this traditional hometown event, and to be part of the many positive things that are happening in Pottstown.  Parade organization includes mainstays such as the Rotary Club 16-foot-high inflated yellow duck, a float from the Pottstown GoFourth Festival, the Boyertown Alumni Band, Getz Steam Calliope, veterans’ groups and many other local organizations. 
We invite your organization to participate.  Please contact us at
We will send you a Registration Form or you can download it from our "Download Files" section on the website. 
The parade begins at 10:30 am on July 4 at High and Adams Sts. and continues west to Manatawny Street.
We expect a great parade with strong community participation, but it will come with expenses such as traffic control/police protection and costs to secure some of the participating bands and contingents. 
Therefore, there is a registration fee required –
$35 for Non-Profit organizations (excluding fire houses), $60 for business/commercial entities,
or $100 for political entities. Individuals and families must register, but pay no fee.
The Pottstown GoFourth! Festival is organizing and planning the events in Memorial Park in the afternoon and evening. 
Although we are working cooperatively with them, we are financially separate.
Registration forms must be submitted and fees must be paid to Rotary by Friday, June 21, 2019.
For questions and additional information contact us at
or our website at
We hope you will join us.
