Public Square Concert

Public Square Concert and Festival — A Star-Spangled Spectacular

Each summer, The Cleveland Orchestra, with the support of a host of community partners, presents a free concert of patriotic favorites and popular classical repertoire in downtown Cleveland.  An annual tradition since 1990, the Public Square concert attracts up to 80,000 people to downtown Cleveland and ends with a spectacular display of fireworks set against the Cleveland skyline.

Since 2003, the event has included a pre-concert festival featuring performances by Cleveland-based musical groups in the hours leading up to the Orchestra concert.

Dates and details of the Orchestra's next downtown concert will be announced in the spring of 2014.
