Collective Soul will headline Fretboard Brewing Red, White & Blue Ash on July 4.

Blue Ash is bringing live music back to its big Fourth of July party.

This year's Red, White & Blue Ash will be headlined by rock band Collective Soul, and all-female rock band Plush will open the show. Local brewery Fretboard Brewing is also a sponsor, so the event is now officially: "Fretboard Brewing Red, White & Blue Ash."

The Billboard Award-winning band Collective Soul — with hits including "December" and "Shine" — will take the stage at Summit Park at 8:15 p.m. on July 4. Plush plays at 6 p.m.

“Fretboard Brewing Red, White & Blue Ash is truly an outstanding event that you don’t want to miss,” said Blue Ash parks and recreation director Brian Kruse in a press release. “It’s an honor to be able to bring world-class entertainment to our community to celebrate Independence Day.”

Red, White & Blue Ash is known for booking big-name bands for its annual festival — some nostalgia acts and some not. Recently, Gavin DeGraw headlined the fest in 2022, REO Speedwagon played in 2017 and Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo took the stage in 2018. 

But there's more than music at Red, White & Blue Ash. The day will be full of rides, wandering entertainment and food and drink vendors. At 10 p.m., Arthur Rozzi Pyrotechnics caps off the evening with fireworks set to music from WARM 98.5.

Red, White & Blue Ash takes place on July 4. Summit Park is located at 4335 Glendale Milford Road, Blue Ash. More info:
