July 3rd Fireworks

July 3, 2014

 

Join us on July 3rd for Silverton Day, live music and a beautiful fireworks display, planned by the Oregon Garden Foundation.

 

Fireworks at The Oregon Garden

Fireworks

We received great feedback on our new fireworks show in 2013 and plan to host the same type of intimate show in 2014. The fireworks display will begin around 10pm.

In response to the tree growth, fire hazard and safety issues, the fireworks display will again be held on the hill located just west of the Oregon Garden Resort’s main lodge,  and will include a show that is designed just for this venue. The Oregon Garden Foundation has worked with Western Display Fireworks to utilize new technologies, often reserved for sporting events held in indoor stadiums, to create a more intimate show and up-close viewing opportunities. Because of this, the fireworks will be best viewed from within The Oregon Garden, namely the Silverton Market Garden and Axis Garden, and views from outside areas will be obstructed.

For our ADA guests, we suggest parking at the Visitor Center and viewing the fireworks from the Bosque.

 

Live Music

8pm – 10pm: JSwift Band of Salem, playing a mix of modern country with alternative and classic rock influences.

SeatingJuly 3rd at The Oregon Garden

Seating is first-come, first-served. We recommend bringing sand chairs (short lawn chairs) and blankets to sit on while enjoying the music and fireworks. Tall chairs can be used, but will need to sit in the back so all guests can see.

 

Donations

Annually, the fireworks display costs between $10,000 and $15,000. Donations are being sought to help offset the cost of the fireworks display.  To make a contribution, contact the Oregon Garden Foundation at 503-874-2535, foundation@oregongarden.org, mail a check to Oregon Garden Foundation, P.O. Box 155, Silverton, OR 97381, or make a contribution through Network for Good and include “Fireworks” as the designation.

Parking

On-site parking is $5 after 6pm.

 

Pets

Please note- The Garden is a pet-friendly property. However, on July 3rd we ask that you either leave your pet at home or have a plan to remove them from the Garden by nightfall. The fireworks can be very frightening for pets and they often get spooked and run away during the display.
