The Best Fireworks Displays in New Jersey

New Jersey Fireworks

Discover The Best 2020 Year Round Fireworks in New Jersey. These events occur at festivals, concerts and Family Themed Events

Year round Fireworks displays in NJ cover a range of awesome displays and rank with the best in the world.

While pyrotechnic displays are often associated with Independence Day - July 4th celebrations, and New Years Eve, many of the fireworks displays accompany a popular event to either kick it off, such as the beginning of the New Year, or as a finale such as a festival, or a minor league baseball game.

Note; Effective June 22nd, the  state announced additional openings and relaxing of COVID-19 restrictions which affects fireworks displays at public and private beaches, boardwalks, and lake shores.

While most New Jersey towns have opted to cancel this year's fireworks, under these recent changed orders, many towns are expected to reconsider having fireworks shows. Currently most public gatherings are limited to 250 people with the limit expected to be raised to 500 people on July 3.

With fireworks events under constant evaluation, restrictions may change and require cancellations or changes of dates, times and locations. Before planning a trip to visit one of the listed events, it is suggested that you check with the event sponsor to confirm the event schedule, or for additional information on the event.

Stay tuned --- we will be updating this list as the event sponsors confirm this year's events
