On July 4th, more than 100,000 people gather at Auditorium Shores for the largest Independence Day celebration in Austin. The Austin Symphony will be under the apt baton of ASO Music Director Peter Bay. The Austin Symphony July 4th Concert and Fireworks features patriotic music and the ever-popular 1812 Overture and spectacular fireworks over Lady Bird Lake.

The Austin Symphony’s 37th Annual July 4th Concert and Fireworks — planned and produced entirely by the ASO — is free and open to the public. The Austin Symphony Orchestra will begin performing at 8:30 p.m. and the fireworks will begin at 9:30 p.m., ending at 10:00 p.m. Come early, bring a picnic, claim a grassy spot and enjoy the patriotic music of the Austin Symphony Orchestra. Concessions will be available on site. (Sorry, alcohol and glass containers are not permitted in the park.)
