Richmond | Oakland East Bay Symphony & Independence Eve Fireworks | 2019

Wednesday, July 3, 2019 - 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Craneway Pavilion | 1414 Harbour Way South, Richmond, CA


Celebrate Independence Day a day early at the Craneway Pavilion, inside the historic Ford Point Building on the waterfront in Richmond with floor to ceiling windows and amazing views of the San Francisco skyline on July 3, 2019.

This free event is fun for the whole family, with live music, food, an instrument petting zoo and of course, the spectacular fireworks display over the bay.

The centerpiece of the evening is a free concert by the Oakland Symphony conducted by Michael Morgan, featuring Sousa marches, music from the movies, singalongs and more.

Seating is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Guests are encouraged to bring their own blankets and chairs – if you’re watching outdoors be aware it gets very cold.

The Craneway Pavilion, located on 25 waterfront acres, delivers spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the entire event space as well as a large outside patio, perfect for viewing the City of Richmond’s fireworks display. Ample secure event parking is available.
