Freedom Fest 2020

Loading Events

The signature event of the Greater Darlington Chamber of Commerce is Freedom Fest- our annual Independence Day celebration and fireworks show at The Darlington Raceway. The event started in 2014 with over 12 thousand in attendance and has grown each year with attendance totaling over 20,000. The annual festival has hosted bands such as Ousthyne and Sister Hazel and drawn crowds in from all over the south east.

Freedom Fest not only offers live music and fireworks, but also vendors selling a variety of foods and merchandise. Vendors have come from around the state, as well as neighboring states, including North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, and as far away as Florida, for a chance to sell their product at the famous Darlington Raceway. They often bring friends, family, and kids- who enjoy the numerous carnival rides and games at the festival.

There is something for everyone at Freedom Fest, and the community looks forward to it each year. At the end of the day, the brave young men and women, past and present, who serve our country are honored with a military appreciation service. Freedom Fest wraps up with the biggest firework show in the Pee Dee, displaying an extravagant 20-minute show of vibrant fireworks. Each year, guests come back to celebrate Independence Day with us, and each year we strive to bring our community the best Freedom Fest ever.
