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. The Guide LIVE Food Zone will be the go-to place for all of your thirst quenching and fantastic food needs. Kids can enjoy bounce houses and play structures in the Happily Ever After Travel Kid Zone, get creative in The Craft Tent or beat the heat at Celebration Park’s Spraygrounds. Other zones this year include the PFSweb Military Zone, Andrews Distributing VIP Zone, Allen American Teen Zone and VisitAllenTexas.com Cool Zone.

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!

Entertainment Schedule, Disney Stars & More Revealed
ALLEN, TEXAS – Allen Parks and Recreation is pleased to announce several exciting updates to this year’s Market Street Allen USA Celebration presented by Texas Health-Allen.  The city’s premier FREE outdoor event will be held the last Saturday in June (Saturday, June 28) as has become tradition at Celebration Park (701 Angel Parkway). 

Joining headliner Pentatonix as well as Chinatown and The 4Troops, Radio Disney Dallas will host Radio Disney LIVE! Win, Lose or Draw Edition fueled by DOLE Fruit Squish ‘ems featuring Kelli Berglund from Disney XD’s “Lab Rats.” In addition to the new Win, Lose or Draw format, organizers are keeping things fresh for this family friendly event, by offering not one, but two Disney stars! Joining Kelli, Dylan Riley Snyder will return to the Market Street Allen USA Celebration again this year.

Also new to Market Street Allen USA Celebration, an Allen American Teen Zone, is being offered. Created with the input of the Allen High School Peer Assistance Leadership Program – more commonly referred to as the PALS Group – this new zone will feature a live DJ, karaoke, dance offs and other fun activities such as line dancing. Other activities include a “selfie “ photo station, gaming bus and outdoor games such as bean bag toss. The PALS Group will be on site, helping to run the Zone and to ensure their vision for the area is realized. 

As the City of Allen’s Independence Day celebration, greater focus is being placed on honoring our military. New this year, special reserved VIP seating is available for active and retired military and their families. Military vehicles will be on display and there will also be a special military salute/encore delivered by the group 4Troops (consisting of four retired United States Armed Forces personnel). 

From Win, Lose or Draw with Kelli Berglund and Dylan Riley Snyder to Pentatonix’s exciting headline performance, event attendees will enjoy two stages packed full of live entertainment from opening (4 p.m.) through the always spectacular fireworks display (approximately 10 p.m.). A full schedule plus other important information such as parking, bus, all event zone, and sponsor information is available via a newly launched, user-friendly and more robust, dedicated event website.

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 Main 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 BancTexas Investment Center Community Stage will showcase some of Allen’s younger talents. The Happily Ever After Travel 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 PFSweb Military Zone, Allen American Teen Zone and VisitAllenTexas.com 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.”
