Due to the High Drought Conditions in Northern Arizona, the only Town that will displaying Fireworks near Grand Canyon is Page, Arizona where Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon are located:

Celebrate Independence Day at one of the seven wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon! There are parades and parties all over the four regions of the Canyon and no end to fun and relaxation.

Here is some information on what to do:

SOUTH RIM AREA – If you are staying in the South Rim area such as Flagstaff, Sedona,Williams or Tusayan…

Flagstaff – “Flagstaff Art in the Park” – July 4th, 5th and 6th 2014 – Flagstaff Art in the Park is a great arts and crafts festival held in Wheeler Park in Downtown Flagstaff.

Just 63 miles/101 km north of the Grand Canyon, this small railroad town celebrates July 4th in a big way by boasting of the longest parades in Northern Arizona.

    1. Shana,

      Only at the surrounding Towns…and this year…by Surrounding Towns, I mean ONLY Page, Arizona (we don’t have any forests to burn down…just sand and sandstone) as the Coconino National Forest is currently closed due to threat of Forest Fire. We’ve had a VERY HOT and DRY year.

      Here is the Headline on AZCentral: https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona/2018/06/25/3-cities-canceled-their-fourth-july-fireworks-show-due-fire-danger/731974002/

      Thank You,


  1. Are there any fireworks shows at the Grand canyon this year in 2018? Are there any other activities on the 4th, is so where? Thanks!

      Page, Arizona WILL have fireworks. Page is where Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon are located. (It’s hard to burn down sandstone and sand…)

      Thank You,


  2. Hi
    Would somebody please be able to give me possible 4th of July celebration details – or weblinks – for 2020 – in and around Grand Canyon village – we will hopefully be staying there for a few days at that time.
    Many thanks.

    1. Kris,

      This is always a wait and see question…it depends on how dry the Forest’s get.

      Normally, Flagstaff and Williams will have Fireworks displays…now, this year, with COVID recovery still going on…maybe/probably not.

      However, Page, Arizona ALWAYS has Fireworks because we’re surrounded by Sandstone and Lake Powell which won’t burn the area down…so, COVID or Not we have a Fireworks display.

      I hope this helps as you plan your Visit!
