FRESH VEGGIE & MARKET DRIVE-THRU Thursday - Sunday 8am-4pm



Back in the Early 60’s Ray Schnepf thought the town needed a firework show, so he flew his little twin engine over to New Mexico and bought up the best fireworks display he could pay for. And if you can believe it, he loaded him in his plane and few back to the farm. Knowing nothing about fireworks except playing with them, the folks came to Ray Schnepf Farms to Celebrate America. He continued celebrating the 4th and provided the residents of the small farming community of Queen Creek a 4th of July they could remember.

During the 90’s and first part of 2000, the Kiwanis’s Club of Queen Creek took over the responsibility of the 4th of July. The Schnepf’s just let them use their land at no charge, to bring the community together to Celebrate America on July 4th. After several years, the Kiwanis’s Club couldn’t continue on as the producers, so it was taken over by Christ the King Church in 2014 and the “Freedom Project” was created. It’s now returned to the 3rd & 4th generation of the Schnepf Family to provide a spectacular fireworks show for those of the Queen Creek and surrounding communities!


This year’s classic local event will feature live music, food trucks, beer & wine bar, and a 30-minute firework show to end the night! Guests will be invited to bring food, non-alcoholic drinks, pop up tents, and games to set up and enjoy the day before the firework spectacular at the end of the night. You won’t want to miss this local treasure’s tradition; come out and enjoy fireworks and a good hometown celebration under the stars with family and friends!
