Cost: FREE Admission
Price Chopper has presented this Albany tradition since our country’s bicentennial celebration in 1976.
The annual holiday celebration features live music and fun for the whole family including the best
fireworks show in the region. Each year, more than 30,000 people gather to enjoy the day at the Plaza,
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. Felix Cavaliere earned his place
in music history as the keyboard player and vocalist for the ’60s pop/rock sensation, The Rascals. From
1965 through 1969, The Rascals were one of the biggest groups in the country, with a string of hits
including the Felix-sung “Good Lovin’” “Groovin’,” “A Girl Like You,” “A Beautiful Morning,” and People
Got to Be Free.” Hailing from the streets of Memphis, soul music flows through Gedeon Luke’s veins in
rainbow colored hues. Gedeon and his band The People are here to crash through the boundaries of
music and society, to bring Love, Peace and Soul to the world.
Traffic and parking in Albany get crazy on the Fourth of July because the city is PACKED, so make sure you show up early. The festival begins at 3 pm with great food, drink and live entertainment to keep you busy before the fireworks start (usually just after 9:00 pm).
