Macy's 4th of July Fireworks

Each year, Macy's moves the display around to share the experience with different parts of NYC. To allow New Yorkers to experience this year’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks safely without creating crowds, the annual spectacle has been reimagined as a series of smaller unannounced displays in every borough of New York City.

Together, we celebrate the strength of the American spirit in New York City and across the country. And we'll do it safely.

The first July 4th fireworks show happened in 1976, the year Macy's partnered with the Walt Disney Company to celebrate the nation's Bicentennial. The event became an annual tradition.

Macy's Mini Fireworks Shows

From Monday, June 29 through Saturday, July 4, Macy’s Fireworks displays will launch unannounced on select evenings across New York City. Each 5-minute display will feature Macy’s signature pyrotechnic scale with thousands of shells reaching heights up to 1,000 feet. 

Each show is brief and will be over before residents can gather at its source. The displays will be launched from one or two land or water based locations over the course of the week-long celebration covering every borough of New York City.
