Planning is underway for this year's Independence Day Celebration. The City of Canby's planning efforts are underway for the 2017 Canby Independence Day Celebration.

This year's event will be held on Tuesday, July 4, in downtown Canby. The event will have live music, parade, car show, beer garden, street fair, and free children's activities.

Registrations are being accepted for food and beverage vendors, arts and crafts vendors, parade participants, and car show entries. Registrations from new and established street fair businesses have already begun to be turned into the city.

Jamie Stickel, Main Street manager said, "We are anticipating a great turnout. It's been great to reconnect with past participants, as well as meet and talk to people, businesses and community organizations who are interested in participating and supporting our efforts."
