LibertyFest has been named one of the Top 10 July 4th Festivals in the United States by CNN and USA Today and it happens every summer right here in Edmond, Oklahoma. The Edmond Amateur Radio Society (EARS) is a key volunteer organization for this event and we rely on a dedicated group of licensed radio operators (and others not yet licensed) to help support it over multiple days. In short — we need you!

The 2024 LibertyFest events requiring volunteer support, with the time commitment, included:

Rodeo (Carl Benne Arena – 300 N. Kelly)
Friday & Saturday, June 28th & 29th 4:00pm to 11:00pm
