City Council approved the 31st Fenton 4th of July Freedom Festival Parade, 5k Race, and Fireworks at the June 12th council meeting and we couldn't be more excited! 

The Fenton Freedom Festival Committee, along with sponsorship from the Fenton & Linden Regional Chamber, the City of Fenton, and the Fenton DDA are proud to announce the events for this year's festival:

Thursday, June 29th

From 5:30-6:30pm, come to the Fenton Community and Cultural Center's Rackham Park to meet the 2023 Grand Marshal! Presentations and announcements will start at 6:30pm to Honor Officer Tom Cole, who has served our community as a Student Resource Officer for the past five years. The 2023 Freedom Festival King and Queen will be crowned during this event!

Monday, July 3rd

After dinner, head to Silver Lake Park for a free Silver Lake Ski Show starting at 7pm. Entry fee to Silver Lake Park will be waived during the hours of this event. 

Tuesday, July 4th

Skip the breakfast mess at home and come to the annual pancake breakfast hosted by American Legion #38 from 7:00am-10:00am at the Community and Cultural Center for $5 a person. At 9:45 the 5k Race and Fun Run/Walk will start behind the Ellen Street Campus and head south down Shiawassee, east to North Leroy, North to Caroline, and then back to West Street. Participants will run that loop three times to complete the race with an awards ceremony immediately following at the race starting line. To register as a participant, go to Good luck to all participating!

Find a spot to rest to watch the Freedom Festival Parade that starts promptly at 10:00am. Floats will be lined up on Industrial Way Drive and will head down Shiawassee to North Leroy, then north to Caroline Street. From there, the parade will head west on Caroline to West Street where the parade will end. Kiwanis Club is featuring the Bike Parade this year and all children are welcome to decorate their bikes and join in on the festivities. There will be a sensory sensitive area provided this year during the parade from the starting point down Owen Road to Fenway Drive. 

The Community and Cultural Center will offer free children's games and art provided by Kiwanis Club and there will be Snow Cones and crafts at the Fenton United Methodist Church. Hungry Howie's will be on site for food and refreshment needs. Need something during the parade? Stop by the Fenton Freedom Festival Information Booth and First Aid Station located at the Fenton Police Department. The annual Rubber Ducky Regatta will start at 12:30pm, sponsored by the Rotary Club, so make sure to buy your tickets to win BIG!

Fireworks will begin at 10:00pm at Silver Lake Park. Remember, there is no parking on the grounds of Silver Lake Park. Thank you to the many sponsors that donated towards the fireworks presentation. The 2023 Freedom Festival is coming soon, and we can't wait to celebrate with you!
