Since 1950, the Champaign County Freedom Celebration has brought area residents together for the sole purpose of celebrating our country’s independence.

In 1994, the 5K Race/Walk was born. In 1999, we added a Youth Run. This event brings over 700 people together to run or walk the Fourth of July parade route before the parade begins. It’s an exciting and energizing way to kickoff the celebration in the morning before the heat of the day.
