4th of July: Fireworks & Events Around the Sound


In-person events are back! As we transition back to “normal” there are several local events and celebrations for the whole family to enjoy this 4th of July! Some cities were not able to pull off such large events given the timing of opening and the circumstances surrounding the pandemic, but there are some great options in both Snohomish and King counties! Check it out:












An “Edmonds Kind of 4th” is back!

– Beat Brackett 5k race (registrations online only)

– Main Street parade

– Fireworks at Civic Field






Everett’s iconic Thunder on the Bay fireworks show returns to Legion Memorial Park.

Also, Everett’s first in-person concert since COVID: Rock the Fourth @ Boxcar Park (21+) featuring: Nite Wave, Petty Thief & Road Trip.






Marysville’s third annual celebration will feature festive photo opportunities, food trucks and fireworks.






Rain or shine, Monroe’s USA Birthday Bash will feature a Demo Derby and Fireworks!






Bellevue Family 4th will look a little different this year. There will not be any entertainment or other activities, but there will be a live firework show downtown.






Tacoma’s Freedom Fair & Air Show will feature military and classic planes. It is a drive-in only event, so check the website for parking spot reservations.





Seattle Seafair is NOT hosting an in-person Fourth of July fireworks show this year. The majority of the Seattle Seafair headline events will be virtual for the second year in a row. Despite the lifting of restrictions, there was not enough time to produce these very large events. More info: Hybrid Seafair Summer 4th 2021

However, instead of the traditional Fourth of July Fireworks show over Lake Union, Seafair will produce an hour-long TV special featuring past fireworks shows. The show will air on KING 5 at 10 p.m. More info: Seafair’s Fourth of July fireworks in Seattle, hydroplane races to be virtual |
