The City of College Park and the University of Maryland are once again breaking out the red, white and blue for a fabulous Independence Day celebration!

A free concert and fireworks spectacular are on tap for Wednesday, July 4, 2018 at the University of Maryland Campus in Parking Lot 1 adjacent to Campus Drive.

The NightLife Band will entertain from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. followed by a 30-40 minute Fireworks Extravaganza at dusk! Fun for all ages! Please follow and like the City’s Facebook and Twitter for the most up-to-date event information!

Concessions open at 5:00 p.m. offering hamburgers, hot dogs, funnel cakes, ice cream, snow cones, soda and bottled water. Grass seating is limited, so bring your lawn chairs and blankets. Personal coolers are also allowed, but alcohol is not permitted. If you’re thinking of bringing your pets to this event…Think
again! Loud noises, flashing lights and large crowds can have traumatic effects on your pets. Let’s do our best to keep them safe by leaving them at home.

In case of storm or the sounding of the weather warning siren, guests should seek shelter as directed by the University of Maryland Police Department.

Rain date (fireworks only): Thursday, July 5, 2018.
