The Fourth of July is a time to celebrate our nation's independence with family and friends. What better way to do that than by watching a spectacular fireworks show? Here are some of the best firework shows and events in Northern Colorado.



  • The Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra's annual Independence Day concert and firework show at City Park is always a hit, with music ranging from classical to patriotic favorites. This year's event will be held on Tuesday, July 4th at 8:10 PM. 



  • If you're looking for something a little more lively, head to the Greeley Stampede for their annual Fourth of July celebration.
