Where to Watch Independence Day Fireworks Around Colorado

Looking for Fourth of July celebrations around Colorado?

We have got you covered.

After many fireworks celebrations were canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Fourth of July shows are definitely back for 2021 this year and Coloradans are already getting excited. Denver holds many festive events to salute 4th of July, and most of them are free. Here is a list of Fourth of July firework shows and mountain town events set to blast off across our state in July of 2021. Please keep in mind that the dates of each event vary from year to year, so we encourage you to double-check the exact date, time, and location to be there at the right place and time.

Journalist’s Note: All events are subject to change. Please check the status of each individual event with an official source prior to planning your travels. Keep in mind that personal fireworks that explode or leave the ground are ILLEGAL in Colorado. Also, keep a mask handy for free shuttles, indoor bathrooms and other restricted areas to protect you and your family.

At the City of Aurora

The Aurora Municipal Center’s Great Lawn will sit empty this year for the city’s Fourth of July Spectacular display, which takes place at 9:30 p.m. around Bicentennial Park. With the Aurora Municipal Center closed to spectators, city officials encourage residents to watch the 30 minute display most preferably from their homes or nearby parks.

***New Update from the City of Aurora

The Aurora Municipal Center’s “Great Lawn” will be open on July 4th, 2021 for the fireworks show. The Aurora Municipal Center grounds and parking lots will be open to the public for fireworks viewing beginning at 6:00 PM.  Guests can bring snacks and water, blankets, and chairs to enjoy the fireworks display after dark at 9:30 PM. However, there will be no music, activities, nor food and beverage sales. The fireworks will be launched from Bicentennial Park, as in years past, and can be seen from area residences and neighborhood parks as well.  

At the City of Denver

Unfortunately, Civic Center’s traditional Independence Eve will not return this year, but Denver’s biggest amusement park Elitch Gardens is offering its dusk fireworks display visible from the surrounding areas on July 4th.  This event will be preceded by free, downtown-visible displays at Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field on July 2nd and 3rd (following the Colorado Rockies games against the Cardinals). The tickets are available at https://www.mlb.com/rockies/schedule/2021-07.

At the City of Castle Rock

Castle Rock’s 9:30 P.M. fireworks show is centered on the top of Santa Fe Quarry butte, above Red Hawk Golf Course, at an elevation of about 6,700 feet, which should make for great viewing nearly anywhere in town. All town parks will also be open until 11 P.M. to the public on July 4th.  For specific information about the fireworks display, you can visit http://crgov.com/2658/Fireworks-in-Castle-Rock.

At the City of Englewood

The city’s family-friendly July 4th event, starting at 5 P.M. on July 3rd, spans Belleview and Cornerstone Park in conjunction with the cities of Littleton and Sheridan, Arapahoe County and South Suburban Parks & Recreation. Englewood’s events will feature various kids’ activities, local food trucks and fireworks at 9:15 P.M. so we highly recommend for family experience. Bring a picnic dinner and blankets to watch the fireworks! For more information, you can visit http://crgov.com/2658/Fireworks-in-Castle-Rock.

At the City of Glendale

Fireworks will start early in Glendale’s Creekside Park around dusk (9:15 P.M.) on July 2nd. Street closures in the area will start around 7:30 P.M. and will remain in effect until about 10:30 P.M., including portions of East Virginia Avenue, South Birch Street, South Cherry Street, Exposition Avenue, South Forest Street, South Dahlia Street and Cherry Creek Drive. This early Independence Day celebration takes places on July 2nd at Creekside Park, 4400 E Virginia Ave.

At the City of Highlands Ranch

The Independence Day celebration begins with an 8:30 A.M. family bike-and-pet parade, followed by a 9 A.M. community parade at the city of Highlands Ranch. You can check https://hrcaonline.org/about-us/guides-communication/calendar-schedules/event-details/july-4th-fireworks-6 for street closures and the parade route, which begins at 9285 Hepburn Street. The 9:30 P.M. – 10 P.M. fireworks display is viewable around the staging area at South Quebec Street and South University Boulevard, but the park and surrounding area is closed to the public this year.

At the City of Westminster

City festivities are on hold this year, minus the 9:15 P.M. fireworks display at Westminster City Park, 10455 N Sheridan Blvd. Parking is limited, and organizers recommend using a free shuttle from various locations in Westminster and Hyland Hills. Nearby Northglenn will also host Fourth of July events at a quartet of parks in conjunction with Westminster’s display.
