The Freedom Fest is taking place on July 1, 2023 at the Porterville Sports Complex. Celebrated each year on the Saturday before the Independence holiday, the Freedom Fest has grown into an event that is both anticipated and appreciated by the Porterville community. The festival showcases musical entertainment, spray zone, an array of vendors, and more. The finale to the evening is, of course, a spectacular display of fireworks.
We estimate that nearly 12,000 people attend this event each year and we would like to invite you to join the festivities. If you are interested in being a vendor or having an information booth at the Freedom Fest, please fill out the online application and submit no later than the deadline listed. We hope to see you there.
