Morgan Hill remains one of the very few cities in the entire Bay Area that continues to have all day events surrounding the 4th of July. Our annual events include the Patriotic Sing, Family Street Dance, Freedom Run, Parade, Freedom Car Cruise and Show finished by a spectacular fireworks and entertainment show entitled Fireworks on the Green.

Celebrated in our historic downtown core, the Community and Cultural Center as well as the Outdoor Sports Center, our six events deliver a spectacular, fun-fill, family set of events every July 4th holiday. The links above will lead you to everything you need to know for each event.

Early Bib pick up will be from Noon to 7pm on Tuesday, July 3rd at The Granary Office Complex, 17500 Depot Street, Morgan Hill.

Bib pick up on race morning is at 7am at Morgan Hill City Hall Parking Lot, 17575 Peak Ave, Morgan Hill, CA 95037.

The start location is at the near corner of West Dunne and Peak Ave


The most exciting place to spectate is the finish line, but anywhere along the course is not bad either. Secret: put your chairs out a couple of days before along the parade route and coordinate with your runner to expect a big shout out from you there.



Yes, but start out in the back of the pack, use a 6′ leach, and please be conscious of runners around you. If you have not run with and trained your dog, this isn’t the venue to start teaching.


Yes, there are 2, one at the start and one at the approximate 1.5 mile mark. The one at the start will be unmanned during the race, the other will have volunteers to help you.


Golden State Timing is our event timing company. Your timing chip will be on the back of your event bib. Do not remove these chips from the bib.
