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!

This year (2021), the LibertyFest events requiring volunteer support, with the time commitment, include:

Rodeo (Carl Benne Arena – 300 N. Kelly) – Volunteers Needed
Friday & Saturday, June 25th & 26th 4:30pm to 11:00pm

Car Show (E.C. Hafer Park – 1034 S. Bryant) – No additional volunteers needed at this time
