New York State's 4th of July Celebration presented by Price Chopper and Market 32 at the Empire State Plaza
Mon, Jul 4, 2016
3:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Empire State Plaza, Alabny, NY
This Fourth of July enjoy great food, entertainment & the best fireworks around!
Price Chopper and Market 32 has 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 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.
The Boogie Wonder Band is on the forefront of neo-funk-and-disco bands that capture the horn-fired sounds and hedonistic fun of the ’70s. With spectacular costumes and a very solid set of musicians, the Boogie Wonder Band considers itself the most disco-loving band in all the land.
Schedule of Events:
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. Site Layout and Road Closures here >>
