Celebrate the red, white, and blue this Moab 4th of July 2021! Many communities across the country will be flying the colors and celebrating in style, and Moab is no exception. From fireworks and parades to special events and some must-see local attractions, you’ll be able to find something to keep you busy every moment of your vacation.


Across the country, people will be marking the date with simple or intricate fireworks displays. As part of this year’s big celebration, Moab will have a beautiful display beginning after dark. You don’t need a front row seat, since the display is visible from virtually anywhere in town.

Statehood Celebration

For 125 years, Utah has been part of the United States. It was a hard battle, taking 50 long years ending in a proclamation by President Grover Cleveland on January 4, 1896, that Utah would be recognized as part of the Union, becoming the 45th state. Part of this year’s 4th of July festivities include the observation of this landmark moment in the state’s history.

Special Celebration

After 16 months in pandemic conditions, including the cancellation of last year’s festivities, Moab will be celebrating big. Aside from the fireworks and statehood observation, the town will be hosting a special fair that includes booths of local vendors, a volleyball tournament, water truck spray down, free swimming, a beer garden, and a concert in the park. COVID-19 restrictions on social distancing and other matters are still in place.

River Parade

Celebrate the patriotic day with a parade. This parade isn’t through the streets of town, but along the Colorado River. Mild to Wild will be hosting a 4th of July Rafting Parade along the river in Moab. Participants can choose from two start times, 8:15 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. Seating is limited, and kids will get a fun 4th of July souvenir. You’re encouraged to wear your best 4th of July attire, with the best costume winning a prize.
