27th Annual KeyBank Independence Eve Celebration

July 3 @ 6:05 pm

The absolute best WNY summer tradition returns to Sahlen Field! Join in the fun on Monday, July 3rd for at the 27th Annual KeyBank Independence Eve Celebration with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Largest Fireworks Show in 2023 as the Bisons host the Worcester Red Sox (6:05 p.m.)!

The Bisons are thrilled to welcome the United States Army’s Jazz Ambassadors to this year’s postgame concert. Known as ‘America’s Big Band,’ the 19-member ensemble have received critical acclaim while performing in all 50 states and throughout the world. The Jazz Ambassadors will play alongside the BPO in this year’s show! Since the event began in 1995, nearly a half a million fans have joined their fellow citizens at Sahlen Field to celebrate our nation’s birthday and pay tribute to everything that makes the USA the greatest country in the world! It’s a can’t miss event that’s fun for the whole family.

The KeyBank Independence Eve Celebration features the best that America has to offer. Our national pastime played out between two great rivals. Then after the games, sit back and enjoy a great post game concert as The Maestro, Paul Ferington, leads the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra with special guests the Jazz Ambassadors. Of course, no KeyBank Independence Eve concert would be complete without several numbers to honor our brave servicemen and servicewomen.

After a feast for the ears, get your eyes ready to be amazed. As the concert ends, the Largest Fireworks Show of the Season begins. Click here for tickets and information.
