2023 Northern Minnesota + Wisconsin 4th Of July Fireworks Schedules
The celebration of America's birthday is coming up fast, with communities across the Northland making plans for festivities, parades, and fireworks. As the big holiday draws near, we wanted to offer a schedule of when and where to catch the 2023 fireworks shows around Northeastern Minnesota and Northwestern Wisconsin.
With Independence Day happening on a Tuesday this year, some shows are scheduled for the weekend, while others are on July 4, and there are even options after the 4th!
Besides fireworks shows, we have also included links to many communities' information about other 4th of July festivities around the region, so you can make plans to enjoy the holiday and related celebrations.
With fireworks displays scheduled for a handful of days leading up to the big day, you can pick your favorite shows and even make plans to check out a few of them across the region.
