Where to Find Ann Arbor Fireworks Displays?

Are you looking for Ann Arbor Fireworks Displays? When I moved to Ann Arbor I was disappointed to learn that Ann Arbor doesn’t have a Fireworks display and that many local displays are spread throughout the week before Fourth of July instead of that night. Growing up Fourth of July Fireworks were an annual tradition.

Local Ann Arbor Fireworks Display

This year Ann Arbor area fireworks display start with the Sumpter Country FairΒ in Belleville over Memorial Day Weekend and end with Dexter Daze in mid August. Locally, the Hudson Mills fireworks are earlier in the week of Fourth of July. The only local display I found on Fourth of July is in Saline. Manchester has had them in the past, but does not have one listed for 2019 (as of June 14)

If you know of any I missed, let me know in the comments. I’ll be sure to add them to the calendar.

Detroit Fireworks

Each year Detroit holds fireworks over the Detroit River in conjunction with Windsor. Viewing is available in both Detroit and Windsor. This year, the Ford Fireworks will be on Monday, June 24 at 9:55p. The event is very crowded and also features live music. NBC 4 broadcasts the Ford Fireworks live which allows you to watch them from home without dealing with the crowds.Β  Their broadcast typically begins with a pre-show at 8p and the fireworks show at 9p. When my daughter was younger, I would DVR the fireworks for her to watch the next day.

Fireworks at Home

Certain fireworks are legal in Michigan. If you choose to use these fireworks at home, please be sure to be safe. Of course, there’s always my method. We watch the displays that are put on by various people in our neighborhood.

I’ve heard the Burns Park neighborhood is usually good for displays.
