Since 1982. New this Year! We’re combining the Celebrate! Gaithersburg Festival and our Independence Day Fireworks into a great big fun family event held annually the first Saturday of July. We’ve kept all the best highlights of our lively street festival, with multiple stages of live music, great food, and plenty of activities for kids, and now we’re keeping the fun going by capping off the evening with spectacular fireworks and an illuminating SummerGlo After Party. You’ll be glad you’ll be in town the first Saturday in July! Please note that no skateboards, rollerblades or bicycles are allowed at this event, except at the Skate Park. Smoking and vaping are not permitted in public spaces in Gaithersburg. All glass, outside alcoholic beverages and weapons, real or facsimile, are prohibited. While dogs are allowed at the festival, we strongly suggest you leave them at home. The park will be crowded, and fireworks are disturbing to many of our canine friends. If you do bring your dog, it must be on a leash. If the fireworks are canceled due to inclement weather, select SummerFest activities will be moved inside the Activity Center at Bohrer Park on Saturday, July 1, and the fireworks only will be rescheduled for Sunday, July 2.
