New York State's 4th of July Celebration
July 4, 2023

Empire State Plaza
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 with special musical performances by some of the Capital Region’s most exciting bands, food and beverage vendors, and a spectacular fireworks show! This year's celebration will feature live music by Starship featuring Mickey Thomas.
