Seniors Tent

Press Release!

We are very sorry to announce that the Champaign County Freedom Celebration (CCFC) will be cancelled for this year. This includes the parade, 5k race, and fireworks. The CCFC board waited as long as possible to make this decision but the recent announcement from the University of Illinois ( to cancel all summer events until further notice prompted this decision. The Champaign County Freedom Celebration started in 1949, and could not happen without the support of our community, including the University of Illinois, City of Urbana, City of Champaign, all local police departments, fire departments, public works, corporate sponsors, and support from citizens like you. As our country goes through this unprecedented crisis, we know that everyone looks forward to gathering together to celebrate our great nation. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all on July 4th, 2021. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact us at
