Join us for Independence Eve presented by Anadarko, the fifth annual free community celebration featuring a concert, light show and fireworks display on Thursday, July 3, 2014, in Denver’s Civic Center Park (Colfax & Broadway) beginning at 8:00 p.m. The concert will feature patriotic and pop favorites from MIX, CU Denver's award-winning a capella group; the legendary Hazel Miller Band and the beloved Denver Municipal Band.
Lawn seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis; arriving early is greatly encouraged, as are blankets or low-rise concert/beach chairs. Attendees are welcome to bring their own picnics; concessions will also be available on-site. The event will take place rain or shine. (Love fireworks but want to avoid the crowds? Ticket information for our first-ever Independence Eve balcony party is available HERE.)
