It is our pleasure to announce our 4th of July Parade Grand Marshal

Cheryl Steele

She is our longest running parade participant, but not the oldest. Her first entry into the parade was in 1984, 40 years ago. She is one of seven mothers that started ShareNet Food Bank.

She spent 10 years as a Cub Scout Leader for Triple Nickel, as well as a Commissioner for the Boy Scouts of America. She spearheaded the traffic light at Streibel's Corner and nominated the grade school to be named after Richard Gordon's. She has been a four-time cancer survivor since 2017.

Please join us in congratulating Cheryl on being our 2024 Kingston Main Street Parade Grand Marshall. Thank you for all you do Cheryl.

The Kingson 4th of July Celebration Committee

We have fireworks!

Greetings Friends of the Kingston 4th of July Celebration,

A little over a week ago the planning committee met to discuss the funding for the 4th of July activities in Kingston. At that time, we found that we were far short of our goals for raising the money we needed.

Our events are completely funded by community donations from our businesses and our residents. We have never missed our goals in the 10 years I've been associated with the planning committee. So, we reached out to our community and asked for help. And Kingston responded exactly as we knew you would.

I am pleased to report that the show will go on! We have raised enough to pay our bills for this year. You helped get the word out and people responded. Many people donated through our PayPal account and several local businesses stepped up and helped us get the funding we needed.

We've posted a list of our sponsors for this year, but I do want to call out a few organizations that went that extra mile for us. This is by no means a complete list of our sponsors or donors and every dollar matters to us. We don't care if you donate $10, $1000 or $10,000, every penny goes into this event, and we are grateful for every donation.

These organizations came through for us when we needed it most. So please support these businesses and organizations because they are supporting you.

  • North Kitsap Fire & Rescue - Official Page North Kitsap Fire and Rescue Employees and Union YOU ROCK!
  • Swift Plumbing Thank you for your support.
  • Port of Kingston Thank you for your very generous donation and your support for this event every year.
  • Kingston Cove Yacht Club. You came through in a big way for us.
  • The Point Casino & Hotel You are the best. You've always supported us, and you stepped up this year when we needed more.
  • The Saucy Sailor You're small but mighty and we appreciate your support.
  • Hood Canal Brewery Thank you again for your support.
  • Downpour Brewing Thank you for hosting a fund-raising event for us.
  • The Kingston Ale House Thank you for the music in the park.
  • Greater Kingston Kiwanis Club Thank you for your donation this year. You're awesome.
  • Rotary Kingston - North Kitsap Thank you for your support. It makes a difference.
  • Greater Kingston Community Chamber of Commerce Thank you for all you do for our community.
  • To all the individuals that wrote us a check, you know who you are, thank you so much. You do make a difference for this community. (If I've forgotten anyone, my apologies, please post your name on our FB page.)

And to all of you that donated via the donation jars or PayPal or bought shirts or buttons we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And to the guy that dropped the $500 check in the donation jar at the Ale House, your next drink is on me.

So, we are a go for the 4th, and we have a great show planned so don't miss it. Pancake breakfast first thing in the morning. Tiny Town opens at 10am. Parade at noon, Ball Race right after the Parade, Beer/Wine/Spirits tent opens at 1pm. Music in the Beer tent starts around 2-ish. Music on the main stage starts at 6 and goes until 10:15 when we fire up the fireworks.

Thank you again, one and all. This is why I love this community so much. I have lived all over the US, and I have never seen a community that is so giving as Kingston.

We look forward to seeing you on the 4th.

Tony Clark
Chairman, Kingston 4th of July Celebration

We are a volunteer organization with people from many backgrounds. They give their time, during the course of the year and on the 4th of July, to plan and organize the events that you come to Kingston to experience every year. Make a donation or be a sponsor of an annual event and let everyone know you support us.

Parade Registration

We need people. There are lots of ways to volunteer your time. We need people prior to the 4th to help us plan and organize events as well as help raise money. We also need people to help on the 4th, even for just a couple hours, helping at the parade or at Tiny Town. If you have the time we would love to hear from you. Contact us!

Look for buttons and t-shirts available for sale around town. What a great way to get the message out to everyone about this great event that’s about to happen in town! This is a quick and easy way to make a small donation for our event. Every little bit helps!
