Market Street Allen USA Celebration 2014

Saturday, June 28


About Market Street Allen USA Celebration
There is truly something for everyone at Market Street Allen USA Celebration presented by Texas Health Presbyterian Allen! 

A star-studded entertainment lineup featuring two stages of musical acts and entertainment leads up to one of the largest fireworks displays in North Texas presented by Harley-Davidson of Dallas. A number of concessionaires will be on site selling all of your favorite festival foods and snacks. Kids can enjoy bounce houses and play structures in the Kids Zone, get creative in The Craft Tent or beat the heat at Celebration Park’s Spray Grounds.  

Thanks to dozens of volunteers and sponsors within the Allen community and the contributions of title sponsor Market Street and presenting sponsor Texas Health Presbyterian Allen, the Market Street Allen USA Celebration continues to be one of Allen’s most significant community events, and best of all,  it remains as it has always been, completely FREE to attend!

Pentatonix Headline Market Street Allen USA Celebration
Vocal sensations and winners of season three of NBC’s The Sing-Off, Pentatonix, will headline this year’s Market Street Allen USA Celebration presented by Texas Health Presbyterian Allen, set for Saturday, June 28. Originally hailing from Arlington, Texas, Pentatonix has twice toured North America selling out venues from New York City’s Best Buy Theater to San Francisco’s Warfield Theater with their first ever European Tour selling out in its entirety. It’s shaping up to be a huge summer for the band who just announced they will play Milwaukee’s Summerfest (70,000+ daily attendance) just two days prior to hitting the David McDavid stage at Market Street Allen USA Celebration playing to crowds which have in recent years exceeded 85,000 at Allen’s Celebration Park (701 Angel Parkway, Allen, TX 75002).   

“Pentatonix’s show is 90 minutes, with lights and risers and more staging, movement and choreography,” explained band manager Jonathon Kalter recently to Pollstar Magazine accounting for the band’s meteoric rise. “It’s a real show and experience for everybody, with audience participation and anything that you would expect from a pop show outside of multiple wardrobe changes.” 

Joining Penatonix, highlights from the entertainment lineup include Chinatown and the 4Troops.  Chinatown is a high energy dance band with a rock influence, known for their “old school” light show reminiscent of an ‘80s rock show.  A special encore presentation from The 4Troops, a band comprised of United States combat veterans who served on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan will precede one of the largest fireworks displays in North Texas, presented by Harley-Davidson of Dallas

Other activities to enjoy include a second stage of live entertainment; the Community Stage will showcase some of Allen’s younger talents. The Kid Zone hosts a multitude of bounce houses and play structures plus a Kid Craft Tent which provides fun and exciting crafts for children and youth of all ages. A number of concessionaires will be on site selling all of your favorite festival foods and snacks. When it comes to beating the heat, the always popular, kidMania Spray Ground, currently closed for enhancements through April 25, is always a top attraction. New additions this year will include a Military Zone, Teen Zone and CVB Cool Zone. Weather permitting, a hot air balloon will be inflated during the day with tethered rides being offered during the event, and a Hot Air Balloon Glow after sunset. 

“From very humble beginnings as a small community gathering, it’s remarkable that the Market Street Allen USA Celebration has emerged as such a highly anticipated regional event,” said Tim Dentler, Allen Parks and Recreation Department Director. “With the support of our great community partners and sponsors, each year we have raised the bar in terms of the caliber of family-friendly entertainment at the Market Street Allen USA Celebration. We are beyond excited to ratchet the excitement up another level with this year’s entertainment lineup and a few surprises that are still in the works.”
