(Cherry Hill, NJ) – The Camden County Board of Commissioners is proud to announce the return of the annual Freedom Festival and Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular at Wiggins Waterfront Park presented by the Commissioner Board and the City of Camden. The festival is set to run from 5:00 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 4, and will include concerts, a salute to our veterans and the region’s largest fireworks display over the Delaware River.


“This is an event that is not to be missed, especially after a year lost to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said County Commissioner Jeff Nash, liaison to the Camden County Parks Department. “Each year thousands of concert-goers come to the waterfront to celebrate our community and our country. Losing last year’s celebration was incredibly difficult, but it inspired us to return this year bigger and better than ever.”


The Independence Day festivities kick-off at 5:00 p.m. with Salute to America and our Veterans presented by the Tri-County Symphonic Band. At 6:30 p.m., Arnetta Johnson and Sunny will take the stage, followed by New Jersey legend Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes at 8 p.m. The Freedom Festival will feature a variety of other fun activities and of course an incredible fireworks display beginning at 9:30 p.m.


The show is presented by the Camden County Board of Commissioners, City of Camden and WMGK at Wiggins Park. Wiggins Waterfront Park is located at Riverside Drive and Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard in Camden. A full list of county events and concerts can be found by visiting
