Celebrating 4th of July Independence Day in Sedona Arizona

Please Note: As we move forward after COVID-19, many areas are getting back to normal with modified restrictions affecting events in their communities.  Modified restrictions may change all the way forward to the event.  Checking ahead will help you make the best decisions to aid in your planning. 

 

FAQ - Does Sedona Allow Fireworks?

FIREWORKS! Many locals and visitors alike want to know what is going on in our great city Sedona on the 4th of July.  The most often asked question (FAQ) is: "Can you buy and shoot off fireworks?" Is there a fireworks celebration? (See Below) Unfortunately, no fireworks are allowed in the city limits. Without getting too far into the weeds on this, the AZ Legislature passed a bill to allow ground consumer fireworks. It took effect on December 1, 2017. Each city will still be able to ban fireworks. Please remember that Federal and Tribal lands have their own restrictions. Call your local government or Fire District to determine if your area allows fireworks.

The Women of the Moose would like to invite you to participate in the 1st Annual, Paint the Town Red (White & Blue) Business Challenge to benefit the American Legion Donald C. Thompson Post 135, Business Fund.  Our goal is to challenge all Verde Valley municipalities to recruit their local businesses to hang an American Flag and decorate their business in a patriotic fashion by the 4th of July. The fee to participate is $10 per business.  As an additional fundraiser, flags of all sizes can be purchased from the American Legion.  There is no fee to the municipality’s business organization for participation but donations towards the cost of the awards would be greatly appreciated.  All proceeds will be directly donated to the American Legion.  Awards will be given to the municipality with the highest percentage of participation and to the most patriotic business as designated by the American Legion Family Board of Officers.

Other outdoor activities to keep in mind that are always available are trolley car rides, Verde Valley rafting (see above), biking, hiking, tennis, golf,  swimming, fishing, birding, and enjoying a picnic by Oak Creek. Don't forget shopping or exploring art galleries and other sightseeing tours such as tours: segway, jeep, air, helicopters, wine, vortex, and balloon rides! There is a lot to do in Sedona and the Verde Valley!  I strongly suggest you make your reservations early for these activities.

Hi Grant Schneider - Having a family in SoCal, we saw a lot of fireworks shows including Disneyland. We lived in the foothills and there was a show at the community college we could see from our backyard. Also, we could watch as all communities below us put on their shows.  It was pretty amazing. The kids loved it.

Hi Wayne Martin - One year we were visiting relatives in Chicago around the 4th of July. We stayed at the Marriott and our room looked over Lake Michigan.  We could see the fireworks show off Navy Pier right from our room.  Quite a different perspective seeing it from up high with the reflection in the background.  When it was over, we were watching the thousands of people leaving below us and were glad we watched it from our room.

Hi Brian England - I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.  Of course, it is never the responsible people who are the problem.  I could tell you lots of stories about the mishandling of fireworks.

Hi Ed Silva - You are correct, especially in a wildfire-prone state like AZ.  We have some big fires going on right now down south.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - Absolutely.  This has a dramatic effect on the pets. I hope it does not materialize much in your area.

Morning Sheri, fireworks in Denver have been off and on for years with such high fire danger.    We are expecting the whole week in the upper 90's, no rain.
