The Heartland Celebration of Freedom is Saturday, June 24th. You will see lots of changes to this year's event. Thanks to many community sponsors we are able to offer this event for FREE! You will have the opportunity to purchase your meal from local food trucks, as well as enjoy great entertainment and an even bigger fireworks display!

Volunteer on-line now, or at the table in the Plaza Sunday morning. Please consider giving an hour or two of your time that evening and don't forget to invite your friends and neighbors to this great outreach event!  


Signing up to volunteer at the Heartland Celebration of Freedom is the best way to be a part of this year’s event! Without the volunteers each year, The Heartland Celebration of Freedom wouldn't be possible!


Although this 5K race is not entirely new to the Heartland Celebration of Freedom.  We have opted for the excitement and comfort of a “Glow Run” this year!  This year’s route will be scattered with a variety of entertainment from the Grand Island area.  So suit up in your most patriotic garb, or come dressed to compete, and we will see you on the 24th!
