Goshen, N.Y. - Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus reminds residents that the County’s 2019 Freedom Fest fireworks show, sponsored by ShopRite, will be held on Saturday, July 27th at Thomas Bull Memorial Park in Montgomery.

Gates will open at 4:00 p.m. and the fireworks will begin at dusk. Residents can purchase food and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) from vendors throughout the evening or bring their own (no glass or bottles permitted).

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.

“We are looking forward to another great fireworks show at beautiful Thomas Bull Memorial Park,” Neuhaus said. “Freedom Fest provides an opportunity for the entire community to come together to celebrate and the County anticipates another great turnout this year.”

Orange County has partnered with ShopRite and SecureWatch24 to bring the show to residents.

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.

“We are looking forward to playing Freedom Fest again,” said Robby Valentine, lead singer of the Black Dirt Bandits. “Freedom Fest brings the community together and is a great way to celebrate America. We appreciate the opportunity to play the event and can’t wait to rock the stage.”
