We are currently updating this site for our 2024 parade … our 60th!

The Northland Community Fourth of July Parade is the only traditional parade on the 4th of July in Columbus, Ohio!

This parade is a completely volunteer effort which requires hundreds of hours of dedicated work to pull together this annual event. We ask our commercial and political partners to pay a fee each year for the parade which helps support it. The funds pay for the permit, police, insurance, trash pick-up, crowd control, banners, signs, float awards, and the wonderful grants we are able to give to our High School programs. These funds are raised entirely by the volunteers asking for donations. This year we have added an opportunity on the entry form for you to donate to help the parade as well. We ask that you consider donating if you don’t pay a fee and if you do, if you could add an additional donation, that would be very much appreciated.

Finally, if you know of anyone who would be interested in volunteering for the 4th of July Parade – before or during the parade – please have them email chair@northlandparade.org. We have plenty of positions for anyone who wants to volunteer and many hands make light work!

The Parade’s Logo:

The 59th parade planning committee of 2023 decided the parade needs to have a logo. Several people on this committee expressed their ideas and suggestions. After a couple rounds of modifications, it was agreed upon that this design shall be the logo:
