The annual Crozet Volunteer Fireman’s Fourth of July Parade will be held June 30th at 10:00 a.m. !
A summer fest – party will be held after the parade at Claudius Crozet Park with fireworks by the Crozet Community Association that evening.
I don’t know that the Crozet Community Association is the sponsor, and frankly, I don’t care. So long as the fireworks go on (and I can see from from my back porch)

Dear Crozet community leaders:
I am writing as President of the newly incorporated Downtown Crozet Association, Inc. to ask for your support of a community effort for which our organization has agreed to serve as the coordinating sponsor.
After many years of providing a free Fireworks Display as part of their Fourth of July Firemanâ€™s Carnival, our Crozet Volunteer Fire Department has reluctantly decided that they must give up providing this show which has become a tradition for our community. The fireworks costs have increased significantly and this expense was taking away from the purpose of their carnival â€“ to raise funds to purchase fire fighting equipment!
The Downtown Crozet Association is a Virginia non-profit corporation (our IRS 501c3 application is pending) consisting of downtown Crozet merchants, property owners and others who are committed to preserving the identity of Crozet as a distinct community and promoting the small town values that drew us here in the first place!
We must raise $4,200 to Save the Fireworks and, although we have placed collection jars at locations around town, your leadership donation is essential to reaching our goal. Wonâ€™t you join us as a key patron for this community event? We have scheduled the Fireworks for 9:30 PM at Crozet Park on Saturday, June 30th as the concluding event of the day-long Summerfest.
Thank you for your interest in our town, Crozet.
