“For the fifth year in a row, Civic Center Park will be Denver’s place to celebrate country, community and culture,” says Lindy Eichenbaum Lent, head of the Civic Center Conservancy. “We are thrilled that Independence Eve has become a treasured community tradition rooted in Denver’s first and only National Historic Landmark.”
This year’s event will start at 8 p.m. with warm-up sets from the MIX a cappella group and the Hazel Miller Band, followed by the Denver Municipal Band’s mixture of patriotic favorites and a pastiche of pop tunes through history, by artists from the Andrews Sisters to Pharrell Williams. And it all wraps up with a fabulous light show and fireworks display over the City and County Building after dark, courtesy of Anadarko. Come early to settle at the park, located at Colfax Avenue and Broadway; visit civiccenterconservancy.org for more information.
