Welcome To CarmelFest

   Celebrating Independence Day at CarmelFest has become a 22 year tradition for the Worrell family.  My children have grand memories of collecting candy at the parade, staring skyward at the fireworks and eating way too many elephant ears.  As Chairman of CarmelFest 2014, I intend to give you and your family the opportunity to create special memories of your own.  I hope you will join me on July 3rd and 4th for another extraordinary, patriotic festival located in the heart of your town – Carmel, Indiana.

   A committee of dedicated volunteers has been working hard to put together this year’s production titled; “The Spirit of America”.  The Organizing Committee working in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Carmel, our sponsors, volunteers and dedicated City employees, promises to bring you another action packed festival perfect for every American no matter how young or how old.

   Please don’t forget to purchase and proudly wear a Spark Button knowing you have just made a big difference in supporting our fireworks show.  I hope you will be able to experience the awesome vocalists showcased in our CarmelFest Has Talent Show and enjoy the live bands performing on our four stages.  The Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts will be open to the public on the 4th for tours.  Feel free to put your chairs out the night before along our parade route, totally comfortable in the fact they will still be there the next morning. 

So many traditions; so many memories… Come make some with us.  Happy Birthday America
