O’Fallon cancels annual Heritage & Freedom Fest. With the continued uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and ensuring to make the best decision to protect the health and safety of our residents, volunteers and vendors, the City of O'Fallon is sorry to announce that the 2020 Heritage & Freedom Fest and Parade on July 2nd through 4th is cancelled.

Our hope is that we’ll be able to have a special event sometime this fall that will give O'Fallon residents an opportunity to come together and enjoy much of what they love about the Heritage & Freedom Fest. Thank you for understanding!

Carnival and Midway

Last year's carnvial was a wild success, and this year's rides will be better than ever. With more than 16 kiddie and adult/teen-only rides, there's something for everyone. Test your skills at fun and challenging games on the Midway, or sample the delicious food: corn dogs, funnel cake, cotton candy, candy apples, popcorn, sno-cones, lemonade, and more.

For carnival rides, you may purchase discounted unlimited ride wristbands in advance June 8 – July 1 for $20 per event day. Upon purchase, you will be provided a voucher with a unique QR code to scan and redeem your Heritage & Freedom Fest unlimited ride wristband(s) at a carnival ticket booth.

Unlimited ride wristbands can be purchased at the festival for $25 each day. Individual ride tickets will also be for sale at the festival for $1.25 per ticket. Most rides require 3-6 tickets.
