Spend this Independence Day with 100,000 of your closest friends! Central Texans will hurry to claim their grassy spot with the Austin Symphony Orchestra this July 4th for one of the largest Independence Day Celebration in the state. This year’s celebration will, once again, be back on the banks of Lady Bird Lake at Vic Mathias Shores (use to be Auditorium Shores) in front of the Long Center for the Performing Arts. The orchestra is excited to move back to its home after a one year stint at COTA while the park was under construction. The spectacular H-E-B Austin Symphony 39th Annual July 4th Concert and Fireworks presented by AT&T U-verse is planned, produced, and performed entirely by the Austin Symphony, with the help of our generous sponsors. Tens of thousands of families will be decked out in red, white, and blue and heading down to Vic Mathias Shores this July 4th for an amazing event complete with a fireworks display over the city skyline backed by symphonic patriotic classics. The orchestra will perform at 8:30 p.m., followed by “mile-high” fireworks at approximately 9:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Tell your family and friends to mark their calendars now. This is the one outdoor event this year you do not want to miss! So grab a picnic and a blanket, and join us at Vic Mathias Shores to declare your Independence!
