Wondering where to see fireworks or celebrate the Fourth of July in Arizona this year? We’ve put together a handy guide to all the fun festivities and fireworks displays planned throughout the Valley of the Sun in 2021. 

Of course, we’ve not gotten away from the pandemic just yet.

So, as you plan your July 4th celebrations this year, it’s a good idea to check out current COVID-19 guidelines on the cdc.gov and Arizona Department of Health Services websites.
