Freedom Fest

The goal of Freedom Fest is to create family-friendly events with very little – or no cost – to enjoy! Spread over three days, the community celebrates Independence Day with downtown concerts, vendors, food, kids’ activities, and fireworks. Don't forget to check out the downtown street fair. Freedom Fest also celebrates the holiday with the Pepsi Family Day in the Park and the Murray Bank Gospel Explosion. These events, held in Central Park, offer an amazing opportunity for families to be together.
