City Makes Difficult Decision to Reschedule Fireworks Display

The annual Independence Day fireworks display, one of the community’s most anticipated summertime traditions, has been canceled due to the uncertainty of public health considerations associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The display is coordinated and sponsored each year by the City of Montrose.

Other regional communities that have also canceled their fireworks displays include Grand Junction, Telluride, and Ouray.

City staff is considering the possibility of rescheduling the display to occur later in the year when some of the current uncertainties are resolved. Information about an alternative date will be released as soon as it is decided.
