Newport 4th of July Fireworks
July 4, 2022 @ 9:15 pm - 10:00 pm
Every year, thousands of locals and visitors alike flock to downtown Newport to take in the City’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display.
Newport’s annual Fourth of July Fireworks display traces its history to a small but dedicated group of community members who volunteered their time to help celebrate our nation’s founding with a safe, family friendly atmosphere.
Today, community support remains a key ingredient in this beloved summertime tradition, helping to offset the costs associated with the influx of visitors who line the harbor from Goat Island to King Park.
Thank you in advance for helping us light up Newport Harbor.
~ We look forward to seeing you on the Fourth!
