After a quiet July 4 in 2020 due to COVID-19, firework shows are making a comeback in Loudoun County in 2021. There are numerous community firework shows planned for Fourth of July weekend, and we’re here to let you know when and where you can enjoy the festivities.

If you want to participate in a parade, dress up your bike, wagon, stroller, and car and head on over to the South Riding Town Hall at 5:30pm.

Middleburg is excited to bring back its incredible July 4 event this year, including amusements, live music, food and drinks, and a great fireworks display.

If you’re looking for a fireworks display with a view, Ashburn is hosting its annual display from Ashburn Lake on July 5. Onsite parking is very limited so it’s recommended to walk to the event and to arrive early so you can find a great spot!
