Tribute to Heroes Tickets
One of our long standing signature events is the Tribute to Heroes Ceremony. This event recognizes the amazing heroes and individuals that have made positive contributions to our community! Heroes that have been nominated and selected will be honored at our Tribute to Heroes in-person event (Thursday, June 15th, 2023) at the DoubleTree by Hilton-Cedar Rapids, will be featured on KCRG, and act as Grand Marshal in the Freedom Festival Parade (returning to downtown Cedar Rapids Saturday, June 24th, 2023)!
Your ticket includes FREE parking in the 2 attached parking ramps, courtesy of Park CR.
Vouchers will be available for pick up beginning June 5th at the Freedom Festival office.
After the success of our online Tribute to Heroes Silent Auction Fundraiser in 2022, we’ve decided to keep the fundraiser online in 2023! A link to look at all of our amazing baskets available for purchase will be available early June! Auction closes at 9 PM on Thursday, June 15th, 2023. You do not need to be in attendance to bid/win. Winning baskets can be paid for and picked up at the Tribute to Heroes in-person event. All proceeds go toward our 501c3 non-profit organization! Thank you to all that donated items!
