It takes $30,000 and more than 200 volunteers to host the 4th July Festival. The Crescent Hill Community Council needs your help. We need donations from our amazing community to be able to hold the event this year!

As costs continue to rise, we are in jeopardy of not being able to fund the event this year. Every year, over 10,000 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 free to the public and supported by membership dues and generous donations from local businesses.

Help us continue this neighborhood tradition and become an individual sponsor today. Your support will also help ensure we can keep the festival a free community event. If you’ve ever attended and enjoyed the event, now is a great time to show your appreciation!

Just donate online:

Additionally, there are MANY opportunities to volunteer before, during, and after the event! For 2024, we are in need of a few good people to…

  • Event Co-chair to learn howe to make the 4th of July happen in future years
  • Music, Fireworks Co-Chair to help with programming (including Active-Duty, Veteran and supporting organizations outreach)
  • Food Vendor Chair  to coordinate food vendors at the event (reach out, get signed contracts, map vendors to food court location, etc.)
  • Children’s Area Chair to arrange for Inflatables and other Children’s Area Vendors; work with Volunteer Chair to man inflatables; run Children’s Field day type games
  • Volunteer Chair to gther Volunteer needs from other committee chairs; set up Signup Genius & work with communications committee to promote opportunities; help at the volunteer appreciation dinner/orientation
All of the Chairs should form committees because many hands make light work! Please reach out to Cynthia Thomas today to help!
