2021 Fourth of July Fireworks at Veterans Park / Lakefront

Milwaukee's July 3rd lakefront fireworks canceled for 2021. We anticipate this event will return for 2022. We currently do not have the staff for this event.

“Our team at Milwaukee County Parks is working tirelessly to ensure that people can safely enjoy parks, trails and amenities as much as possible this summer, but we are still stretched thin,” Guy Smith, Milwaukee County Parks executive director, said. “Cancelling this event was a difficult decision that we’ve been discussing for months, with everyone involved, and we also looked at the possibility of postponing the event until the fall, but it comes down to simply lacking the resources and staffing needed to prepare and clean up from such a large-scale event.”
