The Kansas City Symphony’s 16th annual patriotic concert event is the largest FREE Memorial Day weekend festival in the Midwest! From a moving Symphony concert to the city’s grandest fireworks display, nothing celebrates our military and veterans quite like Bank of America Celebration at the Station. Make it an all-day family affair with pre-concert musical acts, food trucks, Lee Jeans Family Zone, the Honeywell Veterans Place with services for veterans, plus activities inside Union Station and the National World War I Museum and Memorial.

At dusk, swell with pride as your Kansas City Symphony builds to a grand finale featuring Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” with live cannons and “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” We’ll recognize the 100th anniversaries of the WWI armistice, Leonard Bernstein’s birth and Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” while paying tribute to the “Greatest Generation,” our community’s WWII veterans and local Gold Star families. This year, we also welcome special musical guests Airman First Class Melissa Edgmon from the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America and operatic baritone John Brancy with Jim Birdsall as host. Blankets and lawn chairs welcome. The event site opens at 3 p.m. Concert begins at 8 p.m.
