4th of July Events to Attend This Year
1. Midsummer Night Swing: David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band
If you love jazz music, then this is the place to be this 4th of July. Dance at Lincoln Center on the music of famous American trumpeter Louis Armstrong, which will be played by David Ostwald’s Eternity Band. It’s going to be a real danceathon, and you should definitely be there if you want to spend the evening listening to good music and dancing to it. If you’re afraid you won’t be able to keep up with the rest, you have the option of coming a bit earlier for a free dance class that will teach you the basic steps you’ll need to make the most of your evening.
2. Premium Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Cruise
The Macy’s huge fireworks display has become one of the most anticipated events of every Independence Day. If seeing the fireworks isn’t enough for you, we recommend taking a premium cruise that’s packed with entertainment. First, you’ll be watching acrobats perform what seem like impossible poses. Then, talented Broadway singers will delight you with their performances. Finally, you’ll also dance as the DJ plays a live set. There’s also a champagne open bar that you can enjoy during the entire cruise, as well as dinner service and a delicious dessert bar.
3. Fourth of July at the Empire State Building
What better rooftop to spend the 4th of July on than the Empire State Building one? Much more than a simple rooftop barbecue, this soiree guarantees you’ll have one of the best views of the fireworks in the city. If you decide to buy a ticket for this event, you’ll also have access to the reception. There, you can sip on delicious wine, beer, and cocktails, as well as have some snacks. The food and refreshments are provided by the STATE Bar and Grill. You can admire the fireworks on the open-air deck, right on the 86th floor.
4. Blue Note Jazz Festival
Finally, the last event on today’s list is another dream come true for jazz lovers. The festival takes place at South Street Seaport and it’s entirely free to attend. It’s a true commemoration of jazz, with a lineup that includes trumpeter Maurice “Mobetta” Brown, saxophonist David Sanborn, and a band made of eight brothers (Phil Cohran’s) called Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.
We hope you managed to find your favorite among the 4th of July events we suggested above. Regardless of which one you choose, this Independence Day is bound to be a magical one for you.
