Start: NW 39th St and Leary Way NW
Finish: Gasworks Park for the Fremont Solstice Celebration

Celebrate with us on the longest day of the year with the Fremont Arts Council’s most spectacular event! Join more than 60 dazzling community-based ensembles parading down the streets of Fremont with giant puppets, stilt walkers, floats, dancers, cyclists and musicians in this kaleidoscope of joyous human expression. Then, we end the parade with the Fremont Solstice Celebration at Gas Works Park, where we celebrate with local and national street bands, food trucks, beer garden, and more art!
