Cross the blue and orange drawbridge with its gaily lit neon sculptures and enter the Republic of Fremont, Center of the Universe. This unique community is home to 14,000+ residents, a chocolate factory, art galleries, shops, restaurants, open air farmers and crafts markets, software companies, and many active coffee houses. Fremont's city crest boats the motto "De Libertas Quirkas", Freedom to be Peculiar.

The neighborhood boasts many public works of art, including a multi-story rocket that blasts launch steam, a giant troll (holding a Volkswagen bug) waiting to scare those who venture under a highway bridge, a mammoth pair of grass covered dinosaurs, an Interurban sculpture of people waiting for a trolley, and a towering bronze sculpture of Vladimir Lenin.

The first Friday of every month brings many people for art walks, while thousands come for major events such as the Fremont Fair and Solstice Parade with hundreds of crafts, live music, food vendors, colorful floats and imaginative costumes, and Trolloween, a community-wide Halloween carnival.
