The Hudson Valley is steeped in America's most historically significant events--from Henry Hudson sailing along the Hudson, to the advent of the Hudson River School's landscape painting, to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's native Hyde Park roots, to Pete Seeger's environmental advocacy on behalf of the Hudson River. It's no wonder that the Hudson Valley celebrates the country's birth with robust patriotism and fanfare every 4th of July.

We've collected all the fireworks scheduled in the Mid-Hudson Valley region for Independence Day and throughout the summer of 2019.

Several municipalities are still coordinating their 4th of July celebrations, and we'll be sure to add them as soon as they appear. Did we miss a fireworks show near you? Contact with details and we'll get your town's event on the map.
