Located at Roy G. Holland Park in Fishers, the Festival kicks off on Saturday, June 26th at 6 A.M. with the 5K Event registration.  Opening Ceremonies will begin Saturday at 10 A.M.  The Street Dance will wrap up the day from 7 P.M. – 10 P.M.

On Sunday, June 27th, the Festival will continue at 8 A.M. with a national disc dog competition.  The Main Parade will entertain thousands beginning at 4 P.M.  The Festival’s grand finale will consist of  a live band at 6:30 P.M. and the fireworks will begin at dusk.  A wide range of events and activities will occur throughout the entire weekend.

The public may park at Holland Park (1 Park Drive) for $2 per vehicle.  There will be free parking at the Fishers Train Station in the Town Municipal Complex (11601 Municipal Drive) and the Alhuda Foundation parking lot and grass area located at Lantern Road and Sunblest Blvd.  A free shuttle will run approximately every 15 minutes during festival hours to transport people to Holland Park and back.  No parking will be allowed on Sunday on Ellipse Parkway or Holland Drive due to the Children’s Parade, Main Parade and fireworks.  Limited parking in designated areas will be allowed in the Town Complex on Sunday due to Main Parade’s line-up.

Even though the event is at no charge, the Festival strongly encourages donations of canned foods, baby food, nonperishable goods, disposable diapers, cleaning supplies, school supplies, toiletries, new toys, books and puzzles for admittance.  These items will go to multiple programs which benefit those in need.  Multiple drop-off locations will be located throughout the park and will also be collected by local Boy Scout Troops during the Main Parade on Sunday.

Back in 1989, the founders of the Fishers Parade and Festival decided to have a community gathering to celebrate Independence Day.  With the help of volunteers, the event originated as a one-day community picnic, parade, and a few games for the children.  Due to the overwhelming participation by the public, this event grew to a two-day event.

The mission of the Fishers Freedom Festival is to encourage fellowship through civic partnerships and citizen involvement by creating a safe environment, developing needed community services, promoting family integrity and striving to improve the quality of life for every resident by investing in human potential.

The Festival is always in need of volunteers at different levels of participation.  For more information on volunteering or about the festival, please visit, email [email protected], visit 8601 East 116th Street in Fishers or call 595-3195
