The Fremont Community Foundation sponsors major fundraisers each year, and all the money that we raise is given away at the end of the year to other non-profit agencies within Fremont County.
We sponsor the “After FlashBack on Main” event in May each year, featuring a big 'sock hop' street dance that is open to the public at no charge! With wonderful support from downtown Cañon City merchants and other sponsors, the event is a huge success and a terrific family event! Hula-hoop contests, twist contest, and a classic car show keep everyone hopping, and world-famous oldies rock 'n roll band “Flash Cadillac” keeps the crowds dancing in the streets well into the night!
The first ten years of the Festival were held in the parking lots behind Merlinos’ Belvedere Restaurant in Cañon City, and we thank the Merlino family and all their employees for their generosity and support!!
