Discover the Difference

Urbandale is Home to one of the Largest 4th of July Celebrations in the Area!

We invite you to bring your family and celebrate Independence Day in Urbandale.  The Urbandale 4th of July celebration is the largest celebration in the Des Moines metro area.  This event is held at Lion’s Park in the heart of Urbandale.  This long standing tradition includes a 2 mile long parade, a premier carnival, entertainment garden, live music as well as a variety of other activities.  The annual community event is organized by a group of volunteers and is primarily self funded with help from local business sponsors and fundraising.

Extra handicap parking will be available during July 2-4 at Urbandale Senior Recreation Center. Lost & Found and the Police Command Post are located inside Lions Park Shelter House.
