In Illinois, you'll find a fireworks show to check out anywhere between July 1st and July 4th. I say Go Big and see a show every night. Boom!

4th of July Celebrations Around Illinois

Much like when the Halloween holiday falls on a weeknight, communities are split on when the best time would be to hold a 4th of July celebration. Some don't like the idea of moving celebrations to a more convenient day than the actual date of the holiday, others would like to not be half-dead the next day at work.

In 2023, the 4th of July falls on a Tuesday, so there are several communities that chose dates for their fireworks shows between Saturday, July 1, and Tuesday, July 4.

Not every town around Rockford that has had fireworks shows in the past has shared its dates and times for the 2023 fireworks shows.
