Independence Day Concert

Throughout the year concerts are often presented on the U.S. Capitol Grounds.

Throughout the year concerts are often presented on the U.S. Capitol Grounds. Each summer a series of military band concerts are offered on weekday evenings on the West Front steps of the Capitol Building. This series is a continuation of an over 130-year-old tradition.

The National Symphony Orchestra performs three starlight concerts annually on the West Front lawn of the U.S. Capitol. These concerts are sponsored by Congress and the Secretary of the Interior and are held in observance of Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.

All concerts held on the Capitol Grounds are free and open to the public.
