Top 16 Fourth of July Fireworks Shows in Philadelphia for 2016

Fireworks displays illuminate the sky all over the city and countryside

It’s not truly the Fourth of July without fireworks shows filling the sky. And this year marks the first year since 2011 that Philadelphia will hold not one, not two but THREE awesome fireworks displays.

The Benjamin Franklin Parkway hosts its annual fireworks show on Monday, July 4, preceded by the Party On the Parkway and the Wawa Welcome America! Concerts, featuring a free concert by Leon Bridges, a tribute to the tunes of Gamble and Huff and other live performances.

You can also catch fireworks on July 1 at Penn’s Landing after a free show by the Philadelphia Orchestra and on July 2 at Penn’s Landing following a performance from the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own”.

Beyond downtown Philly, tons of other areas in the region invite you to take in expansive firework displays. Read on for our guide to the best fireworks shows in and around Philadelphia.

With July 4th tacking on an extra day to the weekend, why not consider turning your holiday into a patriotic getaway with the Visit Philly Overnight® Hotel Package? Stay over and celebrate America’s birthday in America’s birthplace!

Please Note: All events are scheduled rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, follow @July4thPhilly on Twitter and Wawa Welcome America on Facebook and @DelRiverWfront and @penns_landing on Twitter for the latest updates.
