Abate of Ohio, Inc./ Region 8 has a long standing tradition of hosting the Freedom Rally from its start 25 years ago at the Toronto Band Camp, sadly it was not hosted for 7 years. Begining in 2015 Region 8 with great success & effort has brought this tradition back. Each year we have made this a bigger and better rally, and look forward to many years to come.
The funds to put on this event are gained from sponsors and gate entry fees to the rally. After expenses the monies are donated to one veteran's charity in each of the Regions counties (Stark, Tuscarawas and Carroll). The rally is always held on the 4th of July weekend, beginning on Friday at noon thru Sunday at noon. Great bands, great food, and most of all just the enjoyment of being with your fellow brothers and sisters.
