200 Alabama Bicentennial

Celebrating Alabama’s 200th birthday2017 2018 2019

For decades, Vulcan Park and Museum has been hailed as presenting one of the largest and most extravagant Independence Day traditions in the state of Alabama—and this year will be no exception. On Thursday, July 4 at 9 p.m., we will once again illuminate the skies above Birmingham’s beloved iron man, Vulcan. Free to the public, this year’s show will last approximately 20 minutes and will feature a variety of firework shells that will brighten the sky with new colors and patterns. The show will be choreographed to a musical soundtrack that will feature a mix of patriotic favorites and popular music.

Vulcan Park and Museum takes pride in organizing this highly-anticipated event each year, however, we rely on the community-at-large to help fund this outstanding show for residents of the greater Birmingham area and beyond to enjoy
