[ARCHIVED] City of Newark to Host Annual 4th of July Fireworks and Liberty Day Celebration


Great food, entertainment and one of Delaware's best annual pyrotechnic shows will take place on Wednesday, July 4, at the University of Delaware's Athletic Complex. Beginning at 6 p.m., the event will feature live entertainment and art, food and community vendors, concluding with an amazing fireworks display at dusk.

This year guests will enjoy live musical entertainment from several local musical acts. The Mason Dixon Band 

will take the stage at 6 p.m., playing popular country songs and local favorite, Club Phred will hit the stage at 7:45 p.m. with hits from the 60s and beyond, leading into the fireworks at dusk.

Free parking is available in the University of Delaware Athletic Complex lots, including those surrounding the UD Stadium and Bob Carpenter Center, as well as the Woods Lot (off of Route 4) and the STAR Campus north and south parking lots. The Athletic Complex at the University of Delaware has plenty of space to lay down a blanket or set up a lawn chair to enjoy the festivities throughout the entire evening.

Alcohol is not permitted during the event, and the community is asked to leave pets at home and be sure they are secured safely during the fireworks display, as the noise can frighten animals. Also, please note City offices will be closed on Wednesday, July 4. The rain date for fireworks and musical entertainment is Thursday, July 5. If weather is questionable, please call the Leisure Time hotline at (302) 366-7147.
