4th of July Fireworks on the National Mall

July 4 @ 9:00 pm - 9:45 pm

The National Park Service and partners host a spectacular Independence Day fireworks show in the heart of the nation’s capital. On July 4, 2022, view a colorful 35-minute fireworks display with DC’s iconic monuments and memorials as a stage. Fireworks are scheduled to illuminate the sky from 9:07 pm to 9:42 pm., weather-permitting. The fireworks will be cancelled in case of heavy rain, thunderstorms or high winds.  


Viewing from the National Mall

  • Viewing areas on the National Mall near the Washington Monument and Reflecting Pool will be accessible only through secure access points.
  • Consider wearing hearing protection. These fireworks are BIG and LOUD.
  • Consider wearing eye protection to protect yourself from incidental falling debris (ash).
  • Consider not bringing pets (some get very scared of the loud booms).
  • Immediately following the fireworks, areas along Independence Avenue between the Lincoln Memorial and World War II Memorial will be closed for safety checks related to the fireworks launch site. The road and sidewalks will re-open after cleanup crews have completed their inspection and removed any hazardous materials.

Fireworks may be cancelled due to inclement weather

The fireworks display may be delayed or cancelled if there is inclement weather, such as driving rain, high winds, lightning and/or low ceiling cloud cover in the area. Sign up for automated alerts by texting JULY4DC to 888777.
