Large Firework Displays Cancelled for 4th of July Holiday Weekend

Unfortunately, due the NY State restrictions on large gatherings, there will be no large public firework shows this year in Montgomery County. We will update and share dates of re-scheduled shows when available.

This includes: Shuttleworth Park (Amsterdam), Wiles Park (Fort Plain), No fireworks after the Firecracker 50 race at Fonda Speedway (race available on pay-per-view), Independence Day Festival (Southside Amsterdam), and After the 4th Celebration (Fonda–will be rescheduled for the fall)

Please understand this is a NY State Regulation and not the local family businesses decision.

Fireworks have been a tradition and staple in our area for many years- and while that won’t be on your agenda this year, please continue to enjoy our hiking and biking trails, fishing, history walks, shrines, local restaurants, and shops that are open.

Please wear a mask when you are in town and respect NY State regulated social distancing guidelines.

Thank you for supporting our local businesses, our rich Mohawk Valley History, and enjoy our beautiful county safely. Stay healthy and strong!
