A Capitol Fourth 

Let us all show our pride in America and all those who have served our country that we may celebrate the 4th of July and our freedom. ”  — Patti Koceja, WI

America's favorite Independence Day celebration will feature unrivaled performances from some of the country's best-known musical artists, topped off by the greatest display of fireworks anywhere in the nation. Twenty television cameras will be stationed around Washington, D.C. to capture the sights and sounds of the concert, making at-home viewers feel like they are front and center for the show. 

Watch a clip from previous concerts below. And visit A Capitol Fourth for details about the 2014 concert on July 4th.
