Freedom Festival, at Drakes Creek Park


The Freedom Festival is a loved local event in Hendersonville that includes live music, food trucks, fun activities for kids, and a fireworks showcase.

Entrance Fee:

There is no cost for entry; prices may vary for food and activities.


Drakes Creek Park, situated at 130 Cherokee Rd, Hendersonville, TN 37075.

Why Go?

The Freedom Festival is the Independence Day celebration, in Sumner County. It is located at Drakes Creek Park in Hendersonville and offers views of the fireworks display. It features a variety of vendors providing entertainment, food, and activities. The festival started back in 2004 as a way to support schools through the Hendersonville Chamber Foundation and the Golden Apple Gala. Thanks to help over the years, the Chamber Foundation has provided close to half a million dollars in school grants. This year's event will include fireworks, live entertainment, and the exciting finale of the Hendersonville Has Talent competition. Additionally, food trucks will be spaced out for distancing and sanitizing stations available. Both Chamber staff and the City of Hendersonville are working hard to create an environment where families can enjoy celebrating the country while watching one of Middle Tennessee's spectacular fireworks shows!

Free of charge.

Why Go?

Anyone can park at Memorial Park or Mallard Point Park to access the trail. Along the path, you will have access to various nearby restaurants. Residents can bike, run, or walk by the lake, which makes it perfect to see fireworks being lit in the area. The new greenway is also linked to our current system of greenways, which gives residents miles of linked paths to traverse our lovely city and see local fireworks shows.

Veterans Park

Enjoy a day out at Veterans Park, where you can have a picnic, use the playgrounds, stroll along the walking trails, and play on the sports fields before the fireworks come on.

Entrance Fee:

Entrance to the park is free. We recommend getting there early to get a great spot to see fireworks.

It's the spot for a laid-back family outing on Independence Day. Best of all, entry is free! The park is located at 140 Scotch Street in Hendersonville, TN 37075. This is the perfect place to see fireworks throughout the city. While you wait for the fireworks, there is something for everyone to do. There are baseball fields, softball fields, outdoor hockey, playgrounds, and a skatepark. This is the perfect family gathering, and I would recommend it to anyone who lives in the city.
