Celebrating Our Country & Our Community


The Akron Celebration Committee sponsors two main events for the community throughout the year. One is the Fourth of July gala parade and fireworks, the other being the New Year’s Eve ball drop and fireworks. We rely solely on donations and volunteers to make these events happen. Please consider making a donation so we are able to ring in New Year’s in Russell Park. Donations can be sent to: Akron Celebration Committee, PO Box 16, Akron NY 14001.

Donations are what allows the 4th of July Celebration and New Year's Eve Fireworks. These events are an annual tradition that shows the best of Akron-Newstead and gives the community a fun experience for generation to generation to enjoy. One aspect that allows the community events to happen each year is the generous donations from the community. The Akron Celebration Committee appreciates every business, organization and individual that donates to the event. Download a donation form here.

For donating, it can be a common curiosity to wonder what exactly are the donations for and spent on. So, the Akron Celebration Committee is happy to list some of the expenses for our events so that the community has a better understanding where the donations are going.
