FAQ – Fireworks?
FIREWORKS! Many locals and visitors alike want to know what is going on in our great city Sedona on the 4th of July. The most often asked question (FAQ) is: “Can you buy and shoot off fireworks?” Is there a fireworks celebration? (See Below) Unfortunately, no fireworks are allowed in the city limits. Without getting to far into the weeds on this, the AZ Legislature passed a bill to allow ground consumer fireworks but it does not take affect until December 1, 2017. Each city will still be able to ban fireworks. Please remember that Federal and Tribal lands have their own restrictions.
