Where to see fireworks around Elkhart County

It just wouldn’t be Independence Day without fireworks. If you plan correctly, you can see several Fourth of July fireworks shows in one week because not all community fireworks are actually on July 4.

**Dates, times, and locations will be updated closer to the holiday. **

Best places to see fireworks:

  • Elkhart’s Independence Day Celebration, on the Central Green in downtown Elkhart
    July 5, 2024 5pm-10pm

  • Stauffer Park, Nappanee


Additional Independence Holiday Activities


Each year the Elkhart River Queen hosts an Independence Day Flotilla Cruise 110 Bowers Court, Elkhart 

The Queen sails upstream to the Six Span Bridge where she starts and then floats downstream past Martin’s landing to the Queens dock where prizes for the best-decorated boats will be awarded. Live Music, food, cash bar.
