Celebrate the Fourth at Farragut’s 33rd Annual Independence Day Parade

FARRAGUT, TN – The Town of Farragut’s annual Independence Day Parade is back this year, but with a twist – it will start at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 3. Due to the paving of Lendon Welch Way, this year’s parade will start at the Farragut High School junior lot and proceed down West End Drive to West Point Drive to Kingston Pike. The parade continues to Boring Road, just east of Farragut Towne Square Shopping Center (former Ingles store site).

 The grand marshals in this year’s parade will be the four Farragut public school principals: Gina Byrd (Farragut Primary), Deborah Adorante (Farragut Intermediate), Weston Edmonds (Farragut Middle) and John Bartlett (Farragut High). These administrators are being recognized for exceptional service to their community during the 2020 and 2021 school years.

 Fleet Feet Sports Knoxville will host the fifth annual Farragut Freedom Run 1 Mile & 2 Mile prior to the start of the parade. This flat and fast course is USATF certified and perfect for all levels. Register at

  • North side - Campbell Station Road to Grigsby Chapel Road to Smith Road to Kingston Pike (going west) or Campbell Station Road to Parkside Drive to Lovell Road (going east).
  • South side – Concord Road to Turkey Creek Road to Virtue Road to Evans Road to McFee Road to Kingston Pike (going west). Concord Road to Kingston Pike (going east). 
  • S. Campbell Station Road from Kingston Pike to Brooklawn Boulevard and Municipal Center Drive will be closed from 8:30 to 9:15 a.m. for the Farragut Freedom Run.
