The annual Phoenixville Fireworks Independence Day Celebration is held at Friendship Field in Phoenixville, PA each 4th of July. The fireworks begin around dusk (usually 9:15 pm). This celebration can be seen from almost everywhere in Phoenixville!
Seating for the Phoenixville fireworks is available at Reservoir Park and Friendship Field. Be sure to bring lawn chairs or blankets after 6pm; there are cold refreshments, funnel cakes, french fries, and other snacks available from various vendors.
The first year we moved here (2017), we walked down to Friendship Field to watch the fireworks. It was very nice. Our grandkids played at the playground while we waited for the fireworks to begin. They were everything we had hoped for and the finale was incredible. Last year (2018), we had a family picnic at our home on Mill Street and decided to watch them from the Gay Street Bridge. Unfortunately, the smoke from the fireworks blocked our view, so this year, we will definitely make the trek back to Friendship Field so we don’t miss out!
