When are Fireworks, Grand Rapids?

This year, the fireworks show in Grand Rapids has been canceled. There are plans for the Grand Rapids fireworks to return on July 3, 2021.

Many communities surrounding Grand Rapids have also canceled fireworks for 2020, but some shows remain on the schedule. If you do decide to attend one of the fireworks displays listed, please practice social distancing and stay safe.

West Michigan & Grand Rapids Fireworks

I love taking my kids to see fireworks! Sometimes, I feel like I’m way more excited than they are.

I’m a super fan of the sparkle show for sure, but what I love most is seeing the amazement on my kids’ faces as they experience it.

They scream in surprise at first hearing the loud boom, but then with their eyes and mouths wide with joy, they squeal as colors and patterns light up the sky.

There’s always something magical about a fireworks show, and it’s a perfect way to top off the celebration of our nation’s independence.

In a normal year, it’s hard to keep track of all the communities offering dazzling light shows this summer. Every year, we compile a list of where and when you can find Grand Rapids fireworks (and beyond) to help you sort it out!
