Monday, July 4th. HOURS: 11AM – 3PM

Celebrate the Fourth of July on the Kelley House Lawn! Our biggest fundraiser is back after a two year hiatus. Dance to live music from the Mixed Nuts and watch the parade. Food will be courtesy of Miss KJ’s Bangin’ Bites food truck, serving street tacos, corn, fruit and churros. We’ll be selling margaritas, sangria, beer from North Coast Brewing and wine from assorted wineries, plus non-alcoholic options. Bring your picnic blanket for a spot on the lawn! Admission is FREE! (Note that there will be no hamburgers or hot dogs this year! And no pets, please).

Thank you to our generous sponsors: North Coast Brewing Co. * Old Gold Jewelry * Handley Cellars * Seebass Vineyards * Husch Vineyards * Fathers and Daughters Cellars * Highway 20 Feed * Harvest Market * Miss KJ’s Bangin’ Bites.

Mendocino is full of characters marching to their own tune, and you’ll see them all on parade! Our small town loves to celebrate the 4th of July!

The grounds of the Kelley House Museum are the best place in town to watch the parade–just across the street from the announcer and judging panel. Sit on our lawn or bring your own chair or blanket.
