Welcome

Each year thousands of Eastern Iowa residents and visitors join together to celebrate our nation's birthday by enjoying the many events and activities of the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival. More than 400,000 area residents and visitors attend the Freedom Festival each year. The Freedom Festival begins in June and culminates with the annual Celebration of Freedom Fireworks on July 4th.

Festival Sponsors - $5,000 and above

Because of the continuation of social distancing and precautions taking place to further prevent the spread of COVID-19, and with recommendations by both the Linn County Public Health Department and the City of Cedar Rapids Mayor, it is with a heavy heart that we announce that the 2020 Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival has been CANCELLED.

To encourage the community to help support our non-profit organization, and to ensure the Festival’s longevity and ability to return in 2021, 2020 Commemorative Freedom Festival Buttons are on sale NOW at all Cedar Rapids and Marion Hy-Vee Stores. Buttons are $5 each, and include a Hy-Vee booklet of coupons totaling over $30 in savings!

PLUS Hy-Vee has been generous to offer and honor our yearly Freedom Festival tradition of giving away a $100 Hy-Vee Gift Card to FIVE lucky winners! For “Show Us Your Button” Promotion details CLICK HERE.
