The Longest (and Most Creative) Day of the Year- Fremont’s Solstice Parade

Jun 05, 2018

There’s no better way to celebrate the longest day of the year than with the truly unforgettable Fremont Solstice Parade.  Put on by the Fremont Arts Council, the parade is a dazzling community-based spectacle featuring over 60 ensembles celebrating art in all forms!  With no motorized vehicles, printed words or logos allowed- it’s the ultimate exploration and expression of creativity. The streets of Fremont come to life with giant puppets, stilt walkers, floats, dancers, cyclists and musicians- all culminating at the Fremont Solstice Celebration at Gas Works Park.   

The 30th annual parade takes place this year on Saturday, June 16th at 1pm and runs from NW 39th St. and Leary Way NW ending at Gasworks Park with street bands, fun and lots of great food! 

What’s up:

  • Parental discretion is advised- there can be some ensembles with “trace amounts of clothing.”  The parade is, however, family friendly.  The Fremont Arts Council “does not support over nudity in the parade, nor do they tolerate lewd behavior of any kind.”
