    Let's Talk Podcast: Freedom Fest 850 Celebration in Niceville Shuylar Black & Bobby Dewrell

Welcome to the Let’s Talk podcast, where we connect Northwest Floridians with local leaders. In this edition, Schuyler Black and Bobby Dewrell sit down with Donna Tashick and Ed Burns to discuss the upcoming Freedom Fest 850 celebration in Niceville.

A Community Celebration

Freedom Fest 850 is a great celebration that brings the community together for a day of fun, music, and fireworks. It’s a fantastic event that not only provides entertainment but also supports a local organization, Fresh Start for Children and Families.

What to Expect at Freedom Fest 850

  • Live music featuring Rockers for Life and Vinyl Revival (or Identity Crisis)
  • Barbecue and grilled items provided by the Niceville American Legion
  • Ice cold drinks and sodas from Coca-Cola Val-p
  • A phenomenal fireworks show
  • All proceeds raised go back to Fresh Start for Children and Families

Supporting Fresh Start for Children and Families

Fresh Start is a local organization that provides a hand up to struggling families who are working but facing homelessness. They offer a transitional program, education, and life skills classes to help families achieve self-sufficiency. The organization also runs Repeat Street, a boutique thrift store that supports their housing programs.
