2021 Fourth of July

It's Independence Day! What will you do for the Fourth of July? Romp in the park, go berry picking at a local farm or hike to a waterfall? Many of the region's popular fireworks shows, parades and events have been modified or canceled this year. As we learn more, we'll post it here!

July 4th Events

If you are looking for something to do for the weekend, consider visiting a winery to listen to live music. Some wineries are have re-opened with entertainment, but advance reservations may be required or there may be capacity limits. 

Where to Watch Fireworks

The best place to watch fireworks are at event venues. You may also be able to see some the larger displays from nearby balconies, roof-top decks or scenic viewpoints.

If you plan to light your own fireworks at home, please note that there are more restrictions this year. Within Eugene, fireworks that are legal for retail purchase may be used only between July 3 and July 4. Make sure they are permitted in your neighborhood as boundaries have changed. Fireworks are banned in Eugene from south of 18th Avenue east of Agate Street, encompassing the South Hills.

As always when lighting personal fireworks follow safety guidelines. Only use approved, legal fireworks. Stay away from dry foliage and structures and always have a water bucket and accessible hose. Supervise children closely and be considerate of your neighbors and pets. Loud noises and lights can be traumatic to veterans with PTS and frighten sensitive pets. Make sure your own pets are secured safely indoors. Firework sales start June 23.
