Support our Event!
The Colchester 4th of July Celebration is currently experiencing a budget shortfall due to low fund raising amounts over the past couple years. If we do not reach our goal of $3,000.00 in funds raised by June, we may need to cancel some aspects of the celebration, including inflatables and live music at Bayside prior to the fireworks show.  We are hopeful that the Colchester business community will continue to support this event and help us to reach our goal.
 
If you would like to donate and help make this event a success, please complete a Donation Form (PDF) and return it to Colchester Parks & Recreation with a check for your desired donation amount.  All donors will be recognized in the 4th of July event brochures and in a Thank You in the Colchester Sun. 

If you'd like to learn more about how the 4th of July is funded, please contact Mike by email or at (802) 264-5648.
