Columbus Carriage Classic

Each spring, Fireman's Park is proud to be the host of the Columbus Carriage Classic, an equestrian event with national representation. This event has grown steadily over the past few years and has proven to be both enjoyable and educational to children and adults alike.

4th of July

The park is also the longtime host to the area's largest 4th of July event. The event is a week-long celebration that includes a carnival, nightly entertainment and a delightful array of vendors in the food court. The celebration is highlighted with a parade, which ends in the park and is arguably the largest in the region.
