4th of July 2021 – A one of a kind Island celebration






The Fourth of July is one Madeline Island’s favorite holidays and the traditional kick-off to the summer season. Celebrated with a parade and a bang, it has been described as one of the TOP 10 small town celebrations for the 4th in the entire country!

With so much uncertainty remaining regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the 4th of July parade has been cancelled. Please know that we share your disappointment that the parade will not take place in 2021, public health remains at the heart of every decision we make.

Our spectacular fireworks show will light up the La Pointe skies at 9:45 pm. As we come together as an island community, we ask that you follow all CDC guidelines regarding outdoor gatherings. This includes:

  1. Staying home if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 (symptoms of COVID-19) , if you are waiting for COVID-19 test results, or may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
  2. Avoiding crowded places and maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet or more from people who don’t live in your household.
  3. Wearing a mask when interacting with other people to minimize the risk of transmitting the virus.

The Madeline Island Ferry Line will not be running any special later boats on the 4th of July. The last scheduled trip to Bayfield is 10:30pm. Please plan accordingly.

The Madeline Island Chamber of Commerce hopes to in 2022 celebrate with a full-fledged community celebration!
