Individual Sponsors for 4th of July Festival

Every year, over 20,000 Crescent Hill neighbors and friends gather at the Peterson-Dumesnil House to celebrate our nation’s birthday and enjoy music, games, the pet show, the art fair, and, of course, the fireworks. The event is organized by the Crescent Hill Community Council and supported by membership dues and generous corporate donations from the community. But an event of this size is very costly to put on, and we need your help! Help us continue this neighborhood tradition and become an Individual Sponsor today!
