Event Description

The 4th of July and fireworks are what the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival was founded upon. With that in mind, we set out to make sure we could get the very best fireworks show possible. With the blessing from the City of Cedar Rapids, this year’s fireworks display will be just that.

The Freedom Festival has grown to offer the Corridor the largest fireworks display in Iowa on the 4th of July! Sit back and enjoy the music of today and yesterday’s hits while we put on the show of the year. The fireworks show is choreographed by J&M Displays.



The 2nd Avenue Bridge & McGrath Amphitheatre will be open for entry beginning at 6 PM (please no early entry as a courtesy to our vendors and volunteers who will be setting up) Wear your Freedom Festival button for FREE entry to the best seats for the fireworks (kids 8 and under do not need a button)

Food and drinks will be available for purchase on the 2nd Ave bridge from these amazing vendors: Hy-Vee, O’s Grill, Kona Ice, Americana, La Reya, and more! No outside food or drinks may be taken into the McGrath Amphitheatre but will be available for purchase courtesy of the McGrath Amphitheatre and VenuWorks team.


The first 500 kids will receive a bag with a kids activity book courtesy of Z102.9 and The Gazette.
