The Fourth of July
Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain in 1776.
Many Americans traditionally celebrate by spending time with family and friends, cooking outdoors on grills, and watching fireworks displays.
Austin Symphony July 4th Concert & Fireworks
- Austin Symphony July 4th Concert & Fireworks is back!
- Spend this Independence Day with your family and friends, decked out in red, white and blue.
- Head down to Vic Mathias Shores (formerly Auditorium Shores) for an amazing event complete with a fireworks display over the city skyline backed by the Austin Symphony Orchestra playing patriotic classics.
- The festivities begin at 8 p.m., followed by “mile-high” fireworks.
- The event is free and open to the public.
- Plan ahead! There will be many thousands of people out watching the fireworks display. Please visit the Austin Symphony website and click “learn more” to find out what to prepare for and how to get there.
- You can also consider viewing the fireworks from another (less populated) location. View this article, linked here, for suggestions.
Thank you for sharing. I went to the Auditorium Shores at Town Lake Metropolitan Park to watch the fireworks and listen the concert. It was a unique experience, since it was the first time for me to celebrate July 4th. I found very special that the fireworks were “projected” above the skyscrapers and near the river. This athomsphere will remain a very good memory from the time spent here.
