Fourth of July fireworks to return to Madison at Breese Stevens Field

Madison Fire Asking Public To Avoid 'do It Yourself' Fireworks

MADISON, Wis. — Fourth of July fireworks are returning to Madison this year after a pandemic-induced hiatus.

While in years past fireworks have been launched over Lake Monona, this year’s celebration will be hosted at Breese Stevens Field on July 3. Fireworks will also be launched from a neighboring rooftop.

The event, Festival Foods Lights The Isthmus, will also feature local bands, food and drinks. Gates will open at 5 p.m. and music will start at 6 p.m. Tickets for admission are $10, and children under 12 will get in free with a paying adult.

“We are looking forward to partnering with Big Top Events again this year to provide our Madison community with an extravagant Festival Foods Fireworks show,” said Nina Winistorfer, Festival Foods Community Involvement Specialist.

The event is general admission, and guests will be allowed to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit in the field. Folks can also purchase an all-inclusive rooftop ticket that includes all-you-can eat tailgate food and three beers for $45.

Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at
