The Kalamazoo Freedom Fair was was a demonstration of support for constitutional rights including freedom of speech, peaceful assembly and religion, held on Saturday, May 14, 1983 at Milham Park in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The event featured events such as performances from local musicians, clowns, and speeches made by Kalamazoo community leaders on the topic of free speech. The fair was held as a way for community members to detract attention away from another rally of neo-Nazi supporters, who received permission to rally in another Kalamazoo park, Bronson Park, on the same day.
