The 2016 Festival of the Fourth in Bozeman

An Independence Day concert and fireworks display

The Bozeman Symphony and the Gallatin Empire Lions Club present the Festival of the Fourth at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds in Bozeman, Montana on July 4, 2016. The Bozeman Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Matthew Savery, will perform a program of patriotic and pop favorites at 9:00 pm, leading right into the traditional fireworks display at 10:30 pm. The concert and fireworks are free and open to the public.

“The concert put on by the Bozeman Symphony this year was outstanding and contributed greatly to the celebration of our nation’s birthday here in Bozeman. Both during the show and since the show, we have received overwhelming amounts of support and gratitude from many members of the community thanking us for being involved and helping with the event. The message from the Bozeman community has been loud and clear: they loved the show and hope that it continues into the future,” says Tim Ford, a resident of Bozeman, Montana.

For 20 years, the Gallatin Empire Lions Club has presented the Festival of the Fourth, providing both entertainment and fireworks, free of charge, to the greater Bozeman community. This is the fifth year the Symphony and Lions Club have collaborated to present this community event, which attracts over 7,000 attendees from Southwest Montana.
