Written by pxvonline

Update 07.02.2022: The 2022 Phoenixville Fireworks have been postponed due to high winds. They will now be held on Saturday, July 9th at approximately 9:15 pm at Friendship Field at Fillmore and Franklin Ave.

Here is a message from Courtney Johns on Facebook: “In 2019, we celebrated 21 years of 4th of July fireworks in our community!! After the 2-year break due to the covid pandemic, I am happy to announce: Welcome Back, Phoenixville Fireworks! Since our mother, Karen Johns, passed in 2021, we are honored to continue her legacy and dedication to this event and community. I am pleased to continue to have Petrucci’s ice cream to delight us with yummy ice cream and water ice! Also, Alan snow cones, fantastic popcorn, and cotton candy for all those sweet tooth fans! For all you foodies out there, if you haven’t had the chance to eat at the Fitzwater Station, then you are in luck! Frank will be serving pork/brisket sandwiches, his own “trail cup,” corn dogs, french fries, mac and cheese, and of course, a vegan option!!! Stay tuned for updates!”

Parking is available behind the reservoir, at Franklin Commons, the Santa Anna Club, and the Bethel Baptist Church on Fairview Street.

Handicapped parking is available in the gravel parking lot adjacent to Friendship Field, at the Fillmore Street entrance.

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. No alcohol, drugs, or pets allowed.

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!
