FREE: NYS Fourth of July Celebration @ Empire State Plaza

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Price Chopper has presented New York State’s annual Fourth of July Celebration at the Empire State Plaza in Albany every year since 1976, and the celebration is on again this Saturday (July 4)… but with some changes.

The steps of the NYS Museum are being overhauled this summer, which means that the stage has been re-located to the north end of the plaza in front of the State Capitol Building. And because the museum steps have traditionally been utilized as seating, it also means that you’ll have to bring your own chairs if you want to sit down.

The free festivities kick off at 3pm on Saturday with musical headliners Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes – coaxed north to upstate New York from the Jersey shore – hitting the stage at 8pm. Yes, we’ll be havin’ a party.

Here’s the complete schedule of performances and events for the Fourth of July at the Empire State Plaza:
