The Fenton Freedom Festival will look a little different again this year.

Up until 2020, the Fenton Freedom Festival took place all over Fenton for several days to celebrate the Fourth of July. After the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, many things have changed. As we gear up for the 2021 Fourth of July, the Fenton Freedom Festival will become a one evening event tie to the Fenton Street Experience.

When will the Fenton Freedom Festival take place?

This year's event will take place on Friday, July 2nd from 5 pm until 9 pm. This smaller-scale patriotic-themed event will take place during the Fenton Street Experience.
