Why don't they move Celebrate Erie to the 4th. Of July week and end it on the 4th. With the usual fireworks?
The "celebration" needs a revamp, from old worn out music acts to the spirit of the festival.
Truly celebrate Erie and the birth of the Nation all at the same time, more people to participate, better and warmer weather, more kids home from collage and more opportunities for live performing acts that are cris crossing the area at that time of the year.
Let's see who can come up with a better solution for a celebration that seems to have had it's day.

It would be twice as hard and 4 times more expensive to book a musical act on the 4th of July weekend..

And much easier to obtain corporate sponsorships. Everyone loves being patriotic!

Obviously you folks never worked in booking any events, it does indeed make more sense to move it towards earlier in the season.
Acts for smaller venues like Erie are booked on the availability of a group or act appearing in the larger markets like Cleveland, Pittsburg and Buffalo. If the performer can fit in something along their route they will do it, often with the ability to do it at a lower cost.
After reading some of these posts on this issue it's pretty evident that the posters are full of s--t, they know nothing of what they speak.

The orginal reason it was held in mid August is Mayor Tullio forgot
to get Fire works for the 1976 200th birthday of United States...
So he got them for August.
Yes it is time to move it to July 4th like other cities.
have a blow out picnic , concert etc and the
MAkes more sense then 2nd week of August
