Independence Day Celebration

Independence Day
Ambassador Trevor Traina

Fantastic summer weather on June 26 at the Independence Day Party at Ambassador Traina’s residence in Vienna.Every year, the U.S. Embassy opens the doors to the Ambassador’s Residence in Hietzing to honored guests who help make the U.S.-Austrian relationship so strong. Thanks to our generous sponsors, guests enjoyed American beer, American and Austrian wine, burgers, hot dogs, apple strudel, coffee, and cookies. 

The celebration was co-hosted by U.S. Mission to the OSCE and U.S. Mission Vienna, bringing together partners from across the diplomatic community.

Guests were treated to a singing of the national anthems by American students from The Vienna Boys’ Choir and the USAFE Band got the audience swinging with a selection of American hits.
The festivities were then capped off appropriately with fireworks.
