Rockville Cancels Fourth of July Celebration

Rockville Cancels Fourth of July Celebration

The City of Rockville announced last week that they are canceling this year’s Independence Day Celebration due to ongoing efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Last year’s celebration in Rockville was also cancelled due to the pandemic, along with all other July 4th events in MoCo. 

City of Rockville:

Rockville’s Independence Day Celebration, typically held each July Fourth, has been canceled due to public health concerns arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rockville’s event draws nearly 30,000 people and as part of the city’s ongoing efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, staff recommended cancelling the event.

The city is exploring alternative community events for the summer. Montgomery County’s latest health orders prohibit outdoor gatherings of more than 50 people and the city will not be holding large in-person events at this time. Check RockvilleReports.com and follow the city on social media for more details in the weeks ahead.

The city’s Special Events staff discussed community events during the pandemic with the Mayor and Council on March 15. Find a staff report and video of the discussion with the March 15 Mayor and Council agenda.
