What is the Fishers Parade and Festival, Inc.? The Fishers Parade and Festival, Inc. is a 501C3 not-for-profit, charitable, tax deductible, volunteer organization that provides not only the annual Fishers Freedom Festival, but other events and much needed services for the City of Fishers annually. Although the City of Fishers does contribute to this annual event, the Fishers Freedom Festival Committee must raise 78% of the annual budget. The 2017 budget is set at $390,000.
“The mission of the Fishers Freedom Festival is to encourage community pride and a sense of community through civic partnerships and citizen involvement. We promote a safe and secure community environment, while developing community services, and promoting family integrity. We continue to strive for excellence by improving the overall quality of life for all members of our community by investing in human potential.”
