Mishawaka Independence Day Celebration

Celebrate our Nation’s Independence Day with us at our fourth annual Independence Day Celebration! The day will feature live music, kid’s games and activities, food, arts and crafts, local business vendors, and FIREWORKS! This is an event you won’t want to miss!

We are also looking for fun-loving volunteers to help with this year’s Independence Day Celebration on July 2nd! Our volunteers will help with things like set up and tear down of the event, manning the “Lost Kids Tent,” directing vendors and attendees, and helping ensure that the day is running smoothly for all!

We will have three shifts, including 8am - 1pm, 1pm - 6pm, and 6pm - 11pm. Volunteers must be 18 years of age and up!

Sign me up!
