Tucson Fireworks 2022 Updates for Tucson & Southern Arizona

Tucson Arizona Fireworks Fourth of July

Even with the continuing corona virus pandemic, many 4th of July fireworks events throughout Tucson and the valley will still be held this Monday, July 4th.

Large crowd gatherings, like the free Independence Day Party downtown at the Tucson Convention Center (TCC), and many resorts, that were cancelled last year have rescheduled their events.

While certain fireworks are not permitted to be set off in the city limits, there will be several, unannounced, private shows popping up throughout the night.

Personal fireworks restrictions. Tucson and Pima County has new restrictions and uses of fireworks and laws in the city and county. With the extreme fire danger, and Big Horn fire, personal fireworks danger is high.

4th of July Weather:
The summer monsoon may attempt to disrupt local fireworks shows. In some years, the rain storms start during the holiday event. Check the weather for the Fourth of July
