Salute to America




Come find out how our State Capitol celebrates our Nation’s Independence with this multi-day celebration in the heart of historic downtown Jefferson City. We kick off with a concert event at the decommissioned Missouri State Penitentiary on Saturday, June 30. Events on July 3rd include the Parade, Opening Ceremony, Carnival and FREE concert by the Capitol. July 4th is huge with 17 city blocks of themed areas, 7 entertainment stages, vendors, eclectic festival food, beer gardens, live eagle show, historic & military displays, petting zoo & pony rides, another FREE concert and so much more all capped off with the largest fireworks shells shot in the state in our Red, White and Boom sky concert simulcast to your favorite music.  Jefferson City is uniquely positioned in the center of Missouri with easy access for guests from across the state. So plan to bring your family & friends and stay the whole weekend and see all America’s most beautiful small town has to offer!

It’s going to be a great time so we hope you, your family, friends and neighbors will make plans to join us on the 3rd and 4th! And this year be sure to get tickets for the Concert Inside the Walls concert at the Missouri State Penitentiary. For more details visit
