As the 2nd largest employer in the County we saw the need to continue this tradition of celebrating the freedoms that we enjoy in our Nation. DON is excited for the opportunity to give back to the community while simultaneously raising awareness of the many barriers that people with disabilities battle on a constant basis.

The festival is always a major success on many levels and brings tens of thousands of people from Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Kentucky and Maryland into our area. It is our hope to bring our community together, raise awareness, create local jobs and to make Lawrence County strong.

Since its beginning, the festival has been a family oriented event and our goal is to continue the work of the past while growing the event for the future.
