Town of Leesburg 4th of July Celebration Canceled

Parade, concert, and fireworks will not be held due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

Leesburg, VA (May 22, 2020) – The Town of Leesburg’s annual 4th of July celebration, including the parade, the concert at Ida Lee Park, and the fireworks display, has been canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic. 

“In order to hold our 4th of July celebration, we would need to be in Phase 3 of Governor Northam’s Forward Virginia plan for relaxing the public health restrictions,” said Leesburg Town Manager Kaj Dentler. “Even if we enter Phase 1 next week, it is unlikely we will be in Phase 3 by early July. Given the planning and commitments to vendors and performers that need to be made now, we have made the decision to cancel. We are disappointed, but feel that it is in the best interest of the health and safety of our community.”
