The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival has finally returned for its 39th year of celebrating our nation’s birthday. The fest will take place on July 4 for its grand finale event.

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 the government.

Freedom Festival events and activities provide a broad array of entertainment and educational opportunities geared toward families living in and around the greater Cedar Rapids metropolitan area including hot air balloon rides, live music performances, fireworks, parades and so much more fun for everyone in the family.
