Frequently Asked Questions

Get the low-down on some of the most asked Q’s.

How are you planning to produce this year’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks?

Macy’s will produce its signature pyrotechnic spectacle, via a series of high elevation unannounced displays from select locations across New York City. To allow New Yorkers to experience the fireworks without creating crowds, the annual Independence Day spectacle was reimagined as a series of smaller unannounced displays.

Beginning Monday, June 29 and continuing on select evenings through Saturday, July 4, Macy’s will bring five-minute long portions of its annual display to select water and land-based locations across the five boroughs of New York City.

The 5-minute professional displays will take place at appropriate times after dark.

How can I watch this year’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Show?

Each show is brief and will be over before residents can gather at its source. Staying close to home and following safe social distancing guidelines is the best way to enjoy the show. Showcasing Macy’s signature pyrotechnic design and scale, the displays will fire thousands of dazzling shells per minute, with heights reaching up to 1,000 feet at select locations, giving millions of New Yorkers across the city spectacular views.

Will you announce the locations and timing of the shows in advance?

To encourage and support COVID-19 safety and social distancing efforts, and mitigate the advance gathering of large crowds for an extended period of time, we have chosen to delight New Yorkers with unannounced displays across the five boroughs this year.

While Macy’s and the City of New York will not disclose the exact location/timing of the displays to the general public citywide in order to keep safety as the top priority and to discourage crowds, there will be geographically targeted notifications issued by the City to residents in the vicinity of each display shortly before they commence.

How many shows will you produce and where will they be?

We will produce several displays, each lasting approximately 5 minutes in duration, with the traditional design and scale of Macy’s Fireworks. They will be fired from water and land based locations at a scale of one or two per select evening.

While Macy’s and the City of New York will not disclose the exact location/timing of the displays to the general public citywide in order to keep safety as the top priority and to discourage crowds, there will be geographically targeted notifications issued by the City to residents in the vicinity of each display shortly before they commence.

How can I see the shows?

The displays will take place from high visibility waterways and land-based infrastructure. The shows are designed to reach heights of up to 1,000 feet or more, when launched from land-based infrastructure. Spectators in/and around these locations and many more with unobstructed views will be able to enjoy them.

While Macy’s and the City of New York will not disclose the exact location/timing of the displays to the general public citywide in order to keep safety as the top priority and to discourage crowds, there will be geographically targeted notifications issued by the City to residents in the vicinity of each display shortly before they commence.

The entire scope of the week-long shows, as well as a live finale, will be presented nationally on NBC’s two-hour entertainment special “Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” on Saturday, July 4th beginning at 8pm ET/PT, 7pm CT/MT.

How can I get tickets to see the Macy’s Fireworks displays?

Macy’s Fireworks are free to the public, no tickets are needed to view them.

Why was my neighborhood not chosen for a show?

Final sites were chosen because they could safely accommodate the launch and firing of large-scale, commercial-grade pyrotechnics. These locations, whether land-based or from a waterway, adhered strictly to federal, state and local safety guidelines while also allowing the public ample viewing while practicing social distancing efforts.

Where can I see the performers?
