From Fishers Freedom Festival Website:

Newcomers to the Fishers area might ask, "What is the Fishers Freedom Festival"? But those of you who have attended might agree that it is as close to Uncle Sam and homemade apple pie as you can get.
The annual Fishers Freedom Festival, which offers multiple activities, events and food for all ages is held at the Roy G. Holland Memorial Park (1 Park Drive) off Holland Drive & Ellipse Parkway in Fishers. This free event offers fine arts & crafts, food & business vendors, live music, 5K Event, K-9 demonstrations, Children's Tent, Street Dance, Childrens Parade, Main Parade, Fireworks and much more to the 50,000 attendees who come from all over the U.S. each year.
The Festival occurs annually on the last Saturday & Sunday in June. It kicks off on Saturday morning with the 5K Event. The public may park at Holland Park at a small cost per vehicle. Free parking is available at Town of Fishers Municipal Complex with a free shuttle running approximately every 15 minutes during Festival hours.
Even though the event is at no charge, the Festival encourages participants to donate canned foods, new toys, baby food, nonperishable goods, school supplies and/or toiletries for admittance. These items go to various non-profits organizations such as the Festival's "Roy Holland Backpacks for Kids" program and the Good Samaritan of Hamilton County. The Festival also accepts donations year-round of items to be used in the Children's Tent for different crafts. Those items include buttons and clean baby-food jars with lids; please remove the labels.
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 its present two-day event status.
The Fishers Parade and Festival was incorporated in 1991. In 1998, Fishers Parade and Festival Inc. d.b.a. Fishers Freedom Festival became a 501C-3 charitable private not-for-profit volunteer corporation which is independent from the Town of Fishers.
Responsibility for the Festival is in the capable hands of Jennifer Kehl, as Executive Director, and 40 volunteers who serve as event coordinators, co-coordinators and currently has a five member Executive Board of Directors. During the actual Festival weekend an additional 250 or more volunteers are hard at work.
Many committee members donate up to thirty hours per week for at least three or more months of the year to make the Festival a success. Several other committee members donate time during the entire year to provide the community with a safe and fun-filled family-oriented weekend with a strong Americanism flavor.
