Old Forge Independence Day Celebration

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.

The Fourth of July celebration evening includes a free concert performed by the Floyd Community Instrumental Ensemble starting at 7:30pm. After the Independence Day music, spectacular fireworks over the Old Forge Pond will wrap up the festivities. (Please note that the fireworks will go on rain or shine and will only be cancelled in the event of a severe thunderstorm.)

The Floyd Community Instrumental Ensemble has been creating a variety of music throughout the Mohawk Valley for over 20 years. What began as less than 10 young Floyd United Methodist musicians has grown to a strong, committed assembly of at least 50 people with varying degrees of expertise. While the Ensemble boasts several professional musicians who maintain the core of the group, there are also many young adults as well as adults from a variety of backgrounds. The uniqueness of the ensemble mirrors the vast repertoire of music that this ensemble is able to perform. The music often reflects the unique venue and includes patriotic tunes for the famous Fourth of July Concert in Old Forge, as well as old favorites from America's "Big Band Era." Concert-goers also will enjoy toe tapping medleys made famous by groups and musicians such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, Count Basie, Glen Campbell, and Disney as well as tunes from shows like Mama Mia!, Titanic, and Grease.
