Fireworks in Detroit

Story by Lindsay Whitman Drewes

What is summer in Detroit without an incredible fireworks display? Metro Detroit has loads of celebrations, festivals, and fireworks throughout the summer. Watch as firecrackers light up the city skyline, burst over Comerica park, illuminate the river, or crackle over Greenfield Village. Enjoy live music, food vendors, and family fun at area festivals. This summer is the perfect time to stretch out on a blanket, stare up at the sky and watch a dazzling light show across many Metro Detroit locations.

Check out this list of fireworks displays throughout Metro Detroit. The dates range from late June through mid-July for most of the area’s festivals and exhibits. But if you miss the early summer fireworks shows, you can always catch a Friday Night Tigers home game for Friday Night Fireworks after the game. It’s time to get your Red, White, and Boom on!
