National Repertory Orchestra Concert (July 4, 2022)

Because of dry conditions, Breckenridge hasn't seen public or private firework displays since January 2019 when the indefinite ban was passed by the Town Council. Yet the city offers another cozy option to finish the celebration—listen to the National Repertory Orchestra Concert. The performance starts at 8 pm at the Riverwalk Center.

Generally, in the month of July, Breckenridge sees longer days, rising temperatures, flowers blooming, and summer coming alive just in time for their most prominent celebration.
