ABOUT FREEDOM FESTIVAL
The Freedom Festival is all about celebrating the 4th of July with fun, affordable, family-friendly events!
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people attend the three week festival hosted in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to celebrate our nation’s birthday. The community of Cedar Rapids is showcased throughout the Freedom Festival with over 70 events taking place leading up to the grand finale on the 4th of July: the largest fireworks show in Iowa!
The Freedom Festival is a privately and publicly funded nonprofit organization that is able to provide all of the events at an affordable price thanks to the very generous support of local organizations, individuals and government.
Freedom Festival events and activities provide a broad array of entertainment and educational opportunities geared towards families living in and around the greater Cedar Rapids metropolitan area.
The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation dedicated to serving Cedar Rapids and a significant portion of eastern Iowa.
Our mission is to celebrate the quality of life in Eastern Iowa by providing safe, affordable and fun annual events that embody the spirit of patriotism and a sense of community and family.
