Note: I Love America is a two-part event, 1) the Liberty Festival (daytime) and 2) the Freedom Celebration (evening). Admission tickets are not needed for the Liberty Festival. However, admission tickets are required for the Freedom Celebration.
The Liberty Festival is the day-time piece of I Love America from at 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. on the Bakersfield College campus at the HUB north of the stadium.
The festival provides a great time for families to enjoy the day, “American style” with competitions (below), food, activities, various kinds of other booths, a health fair, bounce inflatables, and more.
Competitions provide an opportunity to ‘show off your stuff!’ So, pick one, or more, and go for it! Winners, excluding ‘Win it in a Minute’ will be announced at the Freedom Celebration at the stadium.
