Event Volunteers

Ever wonder who makes this event happen? It takes the care and support of about 300 people in the community just like you! The Champaign County Freedom Celebration is 100% sustained through volunteers. Here is a listing of our all-volunteer Board of Directors and Committee.

If you would like to join us, please come to a committee meeting. The dates are TBA. We meet at the Champaign Police Department from 6:00pm to 7:00pm on those dates.

We are always looking for interested people to help out this year and for future years. To learn more, please contact us.
