Northeast Massachusetts Fireworks Guide

Our Northeast Massachusetts fireworks guide is new today, July 1, 2016. Our guide covers displays in these Northeast counties: Essex, Middlesex, and Suffolk. We’ve updated the listings in light of the rain predicted for tonight, Friday, July 1, 2016.





We list every event, big or small that we find. This feature is just part of our comprehensive coverage of the holiday. We also feature concerts, patriotic parades, arts festivals, boat parades, small town decorating contests, barbecues, carnivals, picnics and more on our 4th of July in Massachusetts page.

We’ve been working on this list for the past several weeks and we think that we’ve got Northeast Massachusetts Fireworks pretty much nailed down for this year. You might not agree. You might know of some small town fireworks display that we missed. Please write us with your corrections complaints and additions to our listings. We want to hear from you!

We list the rain date for most of the events, the location whether it be at the local school or the town park and we provide a link to the town site or recreation department site so that you can always get more information.

One note of caution, we verify our information and we double-check everything. We do make mistakes and sometimes the event date, time or location changes at the last-minute. We implore you to verify the details of the event, either on the town’s website or their Facebook page before you make a long trip or make big plans. We want to help you and your family have a great holiday!
