The Oakland Symphony joins forces with the City of Richmond to present a free Independence Eve Celebration at the Craneway Pavilion, located inside the historic Ford Point Building on the waterfront in Richmond. This event is fun for the whole family, with live music, food, an instrument petting zoo and spectacular fireworks over the bay! The centerpiece of the evening is a free concert by the Oakland Symphony conducted by Michael Morgan, whose vision for the evening honors women’s contributions to American culture. The concert includes a nod to the late Carrie Fisher with Star Wars’ Princess Leia theme song, and Golden Globe winner Lisa Gerrard’s composition of the Gladiator theme song.

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 available for $20. In the seven years since its inception, this event has become one of the Bay Area’s most popular and talked-about Independence Day celebrations.

The Craneway Pavilion is located at 1414 Harbour Way South in the Marina district of Richmond and can be accessed from the 580 freeway. Seating is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. Guests are encouraged to bring their own blankets and chairs.
Picnicking is welcome! Food, beer, wine and additional beverages will be available through local vendors.
