Almost everything you need to know about the 2019 (30th anniversary) 4th of July UC Celebration at Standley Park

Full disclosure: This is just the preview. All the details will be available this weekend with the release of the July University City Newsletter. Here’s what we can share today … UC Celebration festivities kick off bright and early on the 4th of July with the Pancake Breakfast, by the Knights of Columbus, starting at 7:30 AM by the Standley Park Recreation Center, 3585 Governor Drive. The smell of pancakes and sausages cooking will tempt the 1-Mile Fun Run and 5k Race participants to finish up as they begin races at 7:45 and 8:00 AM respectively. Throughout the day, the University City community will be entertained by musicians and performances, be able to participate in field games, eat tasty dishes from food vendors, and even go swimming at Swanson Pool.

Entertainment update: The evening headline band is Manual Scan from 5 to 7pm. (This is an entertainment update: there is no band scheduled to start playing at 7pm; all entertainment ends at 7pm). The Old Town Trolley runs the length of Governor Drive until 7:30pm.
