For 37 Years, the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival has played an integral part in producing the events leading up to and around the 4th of July for the community! 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.
Like so many businesses and organizations, the decision NOT to host our Freedom Festival produced events in 2020 is heavy on us all. With NO Festival in 2020, it will create financial challenges for our organization.
Here are ways that YOU can help support the Freedom Festival to make sure that we are able to return in 2021 even bigger and stronger:
Thank you for being by our side during this challenging time! Please know that the Freedom Festival Team has each of you in our thoughts. We will get through this together! #FreedomFestConnects
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.
