OUR MISSION

Independence Day Celebrations (IDC) is a non-profit organization committed to uniting the community of Morgan Hill, CA around the vision of our founding fathers who boldly proclaimed that “all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” We are committed to reinforcing and sustaining the principles of American freedom in our community through Independence Day events of the Morgan Hill Freedom Fest.

“I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward “

-President John Adams

OUR EVENTS

Morgan Hill, with continuous July 4th celebrations since 1876 remains one of the very few cities in the entire Bay Area that continues to have all day events surrounding the 4th of July. Our events include Patriotic Sing, Downtown Family Street Dance, Freedom Run, Parade, Car Cruise n’ Show and spectacular Fireworks and entertainment show.

ABOUT US

Freedom Fest is truly a hometown celebration dedicated to preserving our national and local heritage and most important, celebrating our freedom as citizens of the United States of America. We are the largest annual event in Morgan Hill, put on entirely by volunteers. The award-winning parade alone is the largest privately organized parade in Northern California and the official 4th of July Parade of Santa Clara County.
