Canal Place is happy to have returning to our stage the Potomac Concert Band for the 4th of July! 

This is a FREE event so be sure to bring your lawn chairs and blankets along with your friends and family, to enjoy a selection of patriotic songs for the evening. The music will begin at 8pm and will conclude just prior to the start of the fireworks at 9:30pm.

Once the music ends just turn your seats around to view the fireworks from one of the best places in Cumberland. We hope you’ll enjoy this prime location for viewing them.

The band will be following the City of Cumberland’s lead on cancellations so be sure to listen to local media outlets for updates. Should the evening be ruined by the weather, the band (and fireworks) have a rain date for July 5th and will be following the same schedule.

“The band consists of members whose ages range from the mid teens to the eighties with several husband-wife couples, parent child and sibling combination. Many occupation are represented ranging from students in high school and college to folks with their doctorates in various fields. The band includes a number of present and retired band directors and music teachers.

“The Potomac Concert Band is well known in the Cumberland-Allegany County area for its summer concerts which include traditional marches, Broadway show tunes, TV theme music, patriotic selections, and popular songs as well as instrumental features. The band begins rehearsal in late April or early May for its series of approximately a dozen summer performances. The band has been affectionately called our area’s version of the Boston Pops because of the variety of light, entertaining fare. “
Enjoy your evening of music and fireworks but please be respectful of those that are still practicing social distancing or wearing a mask. The public bathrooms by the Shops at Canal Place will be open for use and to allow for frequent hand washing as well.
