Independence Day Fireworks Show

Friday July 3, 2020 - Rain Date Sunday July 5, 2020

2020 Fireworks Show is Cancelled

In light of the potential public health risks presented by the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), The Town of Fairfield has made the difficult decision to cancel The 2020 Fireworks Show. This decision is based upon the recommendations of Town and State Officials, and was made to best protect the health and safety of our patrons and the community as a whole. We apologize in advance for any disappointment and look forward to seeing you at future events.

Come Celebrate Independence Day with an explosive Grucci Firework show. Fireworks explode just after dark, usually around 9:15 PM, from a barge off of Long Island Sound so the show can be seen easily from either Penfield or Jennings Beaches. 

Entertainment from 6:00 - 9:00 PM at Jennings Beach & Penfield Beach  - WEBE 108

Limited Parking: Beach Parking lots can be accessed either with a Season Beach Sticker or by purchasing a Daily Pass for $50.00 per vehicle (credit card only). Daily Passes will be limited to the first 300 vehicles at Jennings Beach and 100 vehicles at Penfield Beach.  A Daily Parking Fee will also be charged to park at the Ash Creek Open Space Parking Lot the day of the fireworks.Lots will fill. Plan on getting there early so as not to be disappointed.
