The great Western New York summer tradition; The KeyBank Independence Eve Celebration with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus and the Largest Fireworks Show of the Season.

Since the event began in 1995, over 420,000 fans have joined their fellow citizens at Coca-Cola 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!

KeyBankThe KeyBank Independence Eve Celebration features the best that America has to offer. Our national pastime played out between two great rivals. Then after the game, sit back and enjoy a great post game concert from the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. Of course, no KeyBank Independence Eve concert would be complete without several numbers to honor our brave servicemen and servicewomen.

This past July 3rd, a crowd of 16,647 watched as the Bisons defeated the Syracuse Chiefs, 6-2. West Point graduate and former Army First Lieutenant Chris Rowley pitched a gem, and the first seven Bisons batters reached base in a six-run first inning. FULL RECAP

It was a tremendous night at the ballpark, and we thank everyone for their attendance at this year's event. Mark your calendars now, we'll have another amazing night at the ballpark at the 24th Annual KeyBank Independence Eve Celebration -July 3rd, 2018!!
