FAQ - Does Sedona Allow Fireworks?FIREWORKS! Many locals and visitors alike want to know what is happening 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 too far into the weeds on this, the AZ Legislature passed a bill to allow ground consumer fireworks. It took effect on December 1, 2017. Each city will still be able to ban fireworks. Please remember that Federal and Tribal lands have their own restrictions. Call your local government or Fire District to determine if your area allows fireworks.
