The 2017 Republic Services Arizona Celebration of Freedom is Tuesday, July 4 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. For the fourth consecutive year, this free event and the "coolest" independence festival in Arizona, will be held at the Mesa Convention Center and Mesa Amphitheatre campus, 263 N. Center St., and along Center Street between First Street and University Drive.
The Arizona Celebration of Freedom includes live music, patriotic displays, a naturalization ceremony, family fun, fireworks and much more! One new attraction this year will be the Freedom Express trackless train. The festival will include Revolutionary War reenactments from We Make History, the only reenactment group of its type in the southwestern United States. There will also be a Fallen Heroes Memorial honoring the Arizona fallen heroes from the war on terrorism.
