The Fourth of July brings with it many traditions and this year is no different. While America celebrates its 244th year of independence, PBS will also air their annual “A Capitol Fourth” event for the 40th year in a row. The show will air on Saturday beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

This year’s celebration will celebrate the past and the present. Performances will take place from cities across the country ranging from Washington, D.C, New York, Nashville, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. New performances from icons such as Patti LaBelle, John Fogerty, Renée Fleming, The Temptations, Yolanda Adams and so many more will keep you at the edge of your seats, while highlights from the concert’s forty-year history takes your back through memory lane.

“For four decades ‘A Capitol Fourth’ has paid tribute to our nation’s birthday and the hopes and dreams of all Americans,” said executive producer Michael Colbert. “This year, our broadcast will reflect what we as a country have faced and the challenges ahead, while showcasing our message of inclusion, patriotism and love.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s “A Capitol Fourth” will not be held on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. The event will instead air with pre-taped concert performances without an audience. The 90-minute special will also feature a special tribute to “workers on the front lines in the fight against the pandemic, a segment honoring the contributions of African American heroes from our nation’s past and present, and a salute to our wounded warriors and their families,” PBS stated.

“A Capitol Fourth” will be hosted by John Stamos along with Vanessa Williams.
