June 25, 2021 Celebrate Lancaster

Celebrate Lancaster is an annual celebration of Lancaster City’s vibrant culture & diversity along with the city’s Fourth of July celebration. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Celebrate Lancaster 2020 is taking a different format that spreads the event “around town” and does not involve large gatherings.

The Celebration Goes On! We’re On The Move

Celebrate Lancaster will take place Friday, June 25, 2021 throughout Lancaster City throughout the afternoon. Here’s what to look forward to: mobile performances with musicians on trucks bringing live music to every neighborhood, food trucks in different areas of the city for residents to enjoy, and to end the night there will be a fireworks display at various locations at dusk residents can view from multiple points of Lancaster City.
