From the Tampa Convention Center, through the main stage at Cotanchobee Park and extending to the Florida Aquarium, FreedomFest will feature live music, strolling entertainment, patriotic family activities, historical tours and a host of culinary delights as the community gathers Saturday and Sunday along the river to celebrate our liberty and the return of summer.
Memorial Day, Monday, from the main stage in Cotanchobee Park the public is invited to join Mayor Pam Iorio, Col. Lawrence Martin, 6th Air Mobility Wing Commander at MacDill Air Force Base, and Dan Mahurin, chairman of Friends of the Riverwalk to honor and salute those who have served our country as well as remember those who have sacrificed protecting this great nation.
FreedomFest is the inaugural event of a planned series of Riverwalk festivals. Organized and sponsored by Friends of the Riverwalk, the goal is to program the waterfront with entertaining, seasonal celebrations, flavored by Tampa’s rich culture.
