Independence is famous for being the historic hop capital of the world. The Hop & Heritage Festival continues to celebrate our community's hop history!
Concentrated in Downtown Independence, the Hop & Heritage Festival showcases Independence's unique heritage and vibrant community.
The festival is a family friendly event. You can look forward to live music, a sensory garden, a cornhole tournament, craft beer and soda, hop history, and more!
