July 4th celebrations on anna maria island

What’s more American than a parade in a small beach town?

The Anna Maria Island Privateers will once again host the annual 4th of July Parade that runs the entire length of the island, starting at Coquina Beach at 10:00 am, travels north on Gulf Dr.,  and ends at City Pier in Anna Maria.

Just like any American small town the parade is a community affair. All are welcome to join in the parade – even visitors! – register here to participate!

The Anna Maria Island Privateers are a volunteer organization with a long history of raising money and supporting the community.

There will be a Scholarship Reception immediately following the parade at the Beach Cafe. The Beach Cafe is a pretty sweet place to hang out, grab a bite to eat, have an ice cream or an adult beverage – all with a glorious view of the white sand beach and the turquoise Gulf Of Mexico.

The After Party will be held at D coy Ducks
