Newport's annual Fourth of July Fireworks display traces its history to a small but dedicated group of community members who volunteered their time to help celebrate our nation's founding with a safe, family friendly atmosphere.
Today, community support remains a key ingredient in this beloved summertime tradition, helping to offset the costs associated with the influx of visitors who line the harbor from Goat Island to King Park.
Thank you in advance for helping us light up Newport Harbor.
Please make your generous donation payable to “The City of Newport” with a notation of “Fireworks Fund” on the memo line, and mail it to the attention of the Mayor’s Office, 43 Broadway, Newport, R.I. 02840.
All donations will be recognized in print and here on the City's website
