Independence Eve Celebration in Civic Center Park

4th of July Fireworks in Civic Center Park

Independence Eve Celebration presented by Anadarko

      With all the wildfires burning in Colorado, many traditional fireworks displays have been cancelled, and  firework bans have been issued across the state. Thankfully you can still celebrate the 4th of July in style by attending the Independence Eve Celebration presented by Anadarko, a free Colorado Symphony concert, light show and fireworks display on Tuesday, July 3, 2012, in Denver’s Civic Center Park (Colfax Avenue & Broadway) beginning at 8:00 p.m.  The Civic Center Conservancy dedicates the event to honoring the remarkable Colorado spirit and encouraging the community to support wildfire relief efforts.

     “The free Colorado Symphony concert, light show and fireworks finale will continue on July 3 in Civic Center Park because this annual gathering to celebrate our nation’s birthday and honor those who protect our country, state and city every day is exactly the type of uplifting tradition that strengthens our sense of community and resolve to help our fellow Coloradans," said Lindy Eichenbaum Lent, Civic Center Conservancy executive director. "This event provides a unique platform to involve a large audience in supporting the ongoing wildfire relief efforts, and we look forward to joining the governor, Anadarko and many others in the statewide fundraising efforts to support the families, communities and fire departments impacted by the wildfires.”

     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.

     Produced by the Civic Center Conservancy and The Colorado Symphony, the 2012 Independence Eve Celebration presented by Anadarko is made possible by the generosity of the following community partners: Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, 9News, Arts & Venues Denver, VISIT DENVER, Comcast, The Denver Post Community and Xcel Energy.

     Civic Center is easily accessible by light rail, bus, bicycle or the 16th Street FREE MallRide and use of public transportation is encouraged. Information on nearby B-cycle bike-sharing locations is available at Bike racks provided by the US Pro Challenge will be available on the north and south sides of Civic Center Park.
