Frisco Freedom Fest and Fireworks Extravaganza

THIS is how we do the 4th in Frisco! The annual Frisco Freedom Fest festivities on July 3 – 4 feature rides and fun in the Children’s Expo, live music on the Community Stage, a Patriotic Vendor Village and one of the biggest fireworks spectaculars in North Texas.

The festivities begin on July 3 with the aforementioned Hotter ‘n Firecrackers 5K and Glow Run, the Dachshund Dash, a Corn Dog Eating Contest, and a Cornhole tournament!

On July 4, the fun continues to build with a Party in the Plaza at Frisco Square, the Taste of Frisco, and an FC Dallas game at Toyota Stadium. (Buy your tickets to the game here for a great view of the post-game fireworks.)

The fireworks extravaganza will commence following the conclusion of the soccer match. The fireworks are launched from the field north of Toyota Stadium and visible from all areas around Purefoy Municipal Center and Toyota Stadium. Many families park nearby in any of the retail developments that surround the DNT/Main Street area.

Bring your friends, your folding chairs, and hang out in the parking lot until the show begins. It’s truly spectacular!
