New York State's 4th of July Celebration

July 4, 2017 
Empire State Plaza

3:00PM - 10:00PM 

4th of July Fireworks

Price Chopper and Market 32 have presented this Albany tradition since our country's bicentennial celebration in 1976. The annual event features live music and fun for the whole family, including the best fireworks show in the region. Each year, more than 20,000 people gather on the Plaza and in the surrounding neighborhoods to enjoy the day, which includes a naturalization ceremony, dozens of food and craft vendors, activities for kids, and an evening of live entertainment leading up to the big pyrotechnics show.

This year's celebration will feature the United States Air Force Heritage of America Band with special guest Tonic.

One of the original Army Air Corps bands, the United States Airforce Heritage of America Band has a rich history of inspiring hearts and minds, building and sustaining American patriotism, and enhancing esprit do corps in the United States Air Force. For over 75 years, the band has represented the Air Force with musical and military distinction, making lasting impressions with their audiences through the universal language of music.

With six top 10 singles, over 4 million records sold, multiple Grammy nominations, platinum albums, hit songs around the world, including "If You Could Only See" and "You Wanted More," Tonic is a musical powerhouse, merging the raw honest of rock with their unabashed melodies.


The use of sparklers and fireworks is not permitted at the Empire State Plaza. All bags and backpacks will be subject to search. No animals or pets (excludes ADA-defined service animals) will be allowed.
