Fremont Solstice Parade
The Fremont Solstice Parade takes place on Summer Solstice Saturday in downtown Fremont. The historic Fremont Solstice Parade is produced solely by the Fremont Arts Council, a non-profit organization, and they have been delighting crowds at the Center of the Universe with fantastic floats, marching bands, and other free-spirited street performances since 1989.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the Solstice Parade. Public art workshops are held early May through June to prepare for the parade. For more information on joining the parade, please contact email@example.com or visit the website www.fremontartscouncil.org for more information on ways to get involved.
The parade has been made famous (infamous!) by the inclusion of the Solstice Cyclists (Solstice Cylists.org), a celebration of 1500+ naked-but-painted bike riders, who are released onto the parade route before the start of the Solstice Parade. This event celebrates the rebel in all of us! It is a “nude not lewd” event, where families are welcome to watch their friends bare all, paint up, and ride through the streets of Fremont!
The parade ends at Gas Works park where you will find food trucks, a beer garden, art installations, and four stages of band performances.
