Christmas Walk

IVC was first organized back in 2018 by a small group of family and friends that wanted to create an event that celebrated culture, friendship, and community all in one place. Today, we are proud to say that our Christmas Walk has become a staple in the Independence area. With unique booths, costumes, music, and delicious food, this is an event that will surely leave you with lasting memories long after it’s over — Don’t be shy. Join in on the celebrations!

Community Appreciation Day

Gratitude is in our DNA! IVC is where we connect with our community. Our Community Appreciation Day is the time when we can unite both! During this annual event, we celebrate the ties that bind us and the place we call home: Independence.
