The patriotic spirit of America is alive and well in the City of Ridgefield. For 100+ years this small community has celebrated our nation's independence in a big way. The celebration has grown into a festival where it's estimated around 5,000 people come each year to bathe in the richness of spirit commemorating Old Glory. The festival committee strives to keep the focus of the festival on honoring our nation's birthday with a little fun thrown in. Due to the restrictions of the COVID pandemic we were unable to hold our usual parade and festival for 2 years, but now we've been given the all clear. It's back to our usual celebration! Let the parade begin!
