[ARCHIVED] Anticipation building for 2018 Orange County Freedom Fest on July 21st


Goshen, N.Y. - Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus reminds residents that the County’s 2017 Freedom Fest fireworks show, sponsored by ShopRite, will be held on Saturday, July 21st at Thomas Bull Memorial Park in Montgomery.

Gates open at 4 p.m. and the fireworks begin at dusk. Residents can purchase food and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) from vendors throughout the evening.

Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler, Sheriff Carl E. DuBois and County Clerk Annie Rabbitt will join Neuhaus at the popular event, which will include a special salute to all veterans in attendance. Approximately 4,000 spectators attended last year’s free event.

“Freedom Fest provides a wonderful opportunity for the entire community to come together to celebrate our freedoms and pay tribute to our veterans,” Neuhaus said. “We have received incredible feedback about this family-friendly show and are looking forward to hosting this event on July 21st. We are also appreciative of our sponsors, especially ShopRite, which is always generous to the County and so many other causes in our communities.”


Orange County has partnered with the Committee for the Families of War Veterans to bring the show to residents. The Committee for the Families of War Veterans is a non-partisan, 501c3 not-for-profit organization that was founded in 2007 to raise funds for returning veterans, current soldiers, as well as soldiers wounded in combat and their families.

Renowned rock/country band The Black Dirt Bandits from Pine Island will headline the entertainment at the event. Popular local band New York Swing Exchange will also perform. Vendor spaces (10x10) are available until Friday, July 13th. For more information or to reserve a spot, contact John Tkazyik at
