This year's theme for Warrenton's Old Fashioned Fourth of July will be "Salute our Heroes". Warrenton's Old-Fashioned Fourth of July is sponsored and organized by the Warrenton Business Association.


Businesses, community groups, families and individuals are invited to participate in the Warrenton Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Parade, one of the largest in the area with more than 100 entries. There are trophies for the best entries. Members of the military (our heroes) have been named grand marshal of the 2018 parade.

The parade begins at 3 p.m. and runs down Main Avenue from the post office to Ninth Street, and then turns west to Warrenton Grade School.
