It's Frisco's biggest Fourth of July celebration! Celebrate our nation's birthday with an evening of live music, great food, local vendors and family fun during Frisco Freedom Fest. The Party in the Plaza begins at 4 p.m., with the National Anthem and flag ceremony.

Don't leave early! The Fireworks Extravaganza brought to you by the City of Frisco and FC Dallas, begins at the conclusion of FC Dallas' match with DC United (start time varies, depending on how long the match runs).
