Independence and freedom are contested ideas. Join the citizens of Prairietown as they celebrate 60 years of American independence, but also hear how others have questioned just how free America is.

Join us for a traditional celebratory July Fourth Ceremony honoring veterans, presentation of new 25-star flag, reading of the Declaration of Independence and singing.

In the Dissenting Voices program, hear two speeches providing historical dissenting views on the Fourth of July to showcase criticisms of American Freedom.

Enjoy a reenactment from the historic White River Guard Militia in Prairietown.
