COMMUNITY PARK BOOTH REGISTRATION forms
Let people know about the wonderful work you do as well as volunteer opportunities available by having a booth at the 4th of July celebration. Whether you are a local club looking for new members, an arts organization seeking a wider audience, or an environmental group hoping to educate the public, we have a booth for you!
NON-FOOD BOOTHS FORMS
If you are a non-profit organization you can reserve a booth in the park or library plaza. There is a $55 fee for the booth. Click here to submit an online application for a non-profit booth in the park or community center.
Note: if your booth provides activity for 150-200 children during the hours of 11:30 am -1:00 pm you may request a fee waiver for the cost of the booth. Click here to submit an online application (requesting a fee waiver) for a non-profit booth

FOOD BOOTHS FORMS
Orinda 4th of July is a great opportunity to introduce your restaurant to Orinda or raise money for your non-profit! To apply for one of our limited number of food booth spots, click here.

The July 4th committee begins its work in January. We always welcome new volunteers. There are many committees with various time commitments to choose from. It is great fun to be a part of this long-standing and very well attended community project. Students will find a great many ways to contribute volunteer hours for community service as well. What better way to show your patriotism than by helping make this 4th of July celebration the best ever? Lots of opportunities exist for individuals and families.
