Since 1902 Independence Days, (formerly known as Western Days), has been a hometown tradition for locals. It’s a 4th of July party like no other, a special event planned for the community, by the community. Join us at the Riverview Park in downtown Independence, July 2nd-4th. Enjoy three full days of non-stop fun as our community comes together to celebrate the birth of our great nation.
Event goers will be welcomed with upbeat live entertainment, wholesome family activities, and YMCA kid’s zone that will be the talk of the car ride home. We also have a diverse selection of food trucks and downtown restaurants that have ALL your favorites. There’s a Grand Parade that stretches from Monmouth to Independence, a rubber ducky derby on the Willamette River, fireworks and SO MUCH MORE!
