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!
