In 2011, we incorporated the Day of Compassion into Freedom Fest.  It resonated so well with the vision and purpose of the event that we have offered it ever since. Be sure to read below what services are being provided and their times of operation so you don’t miss anything from our compassion component. Also, please note, while the compassion component operates from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, items and resources are only available as supplies last.


We are pleased that Mercyhealth in partnership with other community organizations will be providing free screenings and awareness information at Freedom Fest from 10:00am-2:00pm. Learn about prevention and detection of cancer, test how well you are washing germs from your hands, see how a heart beats and much more! There will be Mercyhealth professionals to answer your questions in your effort to stay healthy. Mercyhealth will once again be giving away bicycle helmets for children starting at 11:00am while supplies last. There will be plenty of other children’s activities available within the tent. Stop by to learn more about your own health and thank Mercyhealth for providing this wonderful service to the community.


Many of the great free services you enjoyed at previous events will be back for Freedom Fest 2019. In addition to the health screenings and information from Mercyhealth, our guests will also find valuable information at our veterans’ services area. One of our tents will be outfitted with a clothing giveaway, featuring various styles and sizes of clothing. Returning from 2018, we will also have free haircuts provided by professional stylists from across our community as well as an opportunity to have a free family portrait done by a skilled photographer. Of course, we want to be available to offer prayer to those who might need it as well. All of this is free while supplies last and operates from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
