The Freedom Festival Committee would also like to thank the City of East Jordan and the city departments for all their hard work, East Jordan DPW, East Jordan Police Dept., East Jordan Fire Dept., and Jordan Valley EMS Authority. Thank you to the East Jordan Area Chamber of Commerce for their support and advertising assistance, Special thanks to the South Arm ORV Club. We would also like to thank the Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Department, and to the many volunteers that put in lots of hours to make the event a success.
As you can see…it takes MANY people to make a successful festival. Without their time and support events such as the East Jordan Freedom Festival would not be possible! Please thank the owners and managers of these businesses as you support them throughout the year.
If you would like to be part of the volunteer planning committee or festival board for the 2020 East Jordan Freedom Festival please contact Shannon at 231-536-7351 or info@eastjordanfreedomfestival.org
