With events and stores reopening at different paces, it can be hard to tell what is going on and what’s still on hold. You can add Fourth of July fireworks displays to that list. 

Many cities and towns rely on sponsors and donations to put on their displays, which can cost a significant amount of money. Some cities were not able to secure those funds for 2021, and some are still searching for the right sponsors.

If you know of an upcoming show that’s not listed, please let me know by filling out the contact form at the bottom of this page.

And please comment below with the fireworks shows you believe are the best in Minnesota!
