This year in the Valley, Fourth of July celebrations will look a little different, but you’ll still be able to see fireworks in Phoenix in 2020. Many cities in the Phoenix metro area have modified their events to accommodate social distancing. Here are eight places in the Metro Phoenix where you can drive to watch fireworks from your car or from home via livestream this Independence Day, plus where you can grab takeout before watching fireworks in Phoenix.

Apache Junction

At 8:30 p.m., the city will begin its fireworks, which will feature only vertical displays, so people can easily see from home. You can also watch virtually via social media livestreams.

Litchfield Park

The Wigwam, a nearby resort, will set off fireworks at 9:00 p.m., which you can watch from the resort (if you’re staying or dining there), home, or your car.


Starting at 9:00 p.m., the city will run two 15-minute high-altitude fireworks shows simultaneously, one in the north part of the city and one in the south. You can watch from home.


Put on by the City of Mesa and located in Tempe, the 30-minute Arizona Celebration of Freedom will begin at 9:00 p.m. at 1425 W. Southern Ave., the old Fiesta Mall. Cars will park in every other space and attendees can hang out on one side of the car. The parking lot will open at 7:00 p.m. and admission is free. Plus, you can tune in to KOOL FM 94.5 for pre-show fun and music during the fireworks!

Queen Creek

Schnepf Farms is hosting their fireworks show starting at 9 p.m. so you can watch the show from the comfort of your own home.

The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess will set off fireworks nightly July 2-4 at 9:00 p.m. and there will be a vintage air show on July 4 at 4:45 p.m. Note: these events are only open to patrons of the resort.
