Bag and cooler checks will be conducted at this event. With increases in outside alcohol found around the property after the event, we are more heavily enforcing this rule. The only exception to this rule will be water bottles and small snacks for babies and/or small children.

We received great feedback on our new and more intimate fireworks show, which we debuted in 2013, and we plan to host the same type of show in 2016. The fireworks display will begin around 10pm.


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




Live Music

Enjoy a performance by The FlexTones in Founder’s Square in the Silverton Market Garden.

7pm – 10pm & again following the fireworks from 10:30pm – 11:30pm.

Avoid the traffic and stay for the second set – the food and beverage booths will remain open until about 11:15pm.





General Admission, 9am to 6pm

  • Adults $12
  • Seniors $10
  • Students (12-17) $9
  • Children (5-11) $6
  • Children (4 & under) Free
  • Silverton Residents (must show proof of residency) Free
  • Garden Members (must show membership card) Free


After 6pm, admission is free for everyone. A donation of $5 per family is suggested to help cover the cost of the fireworks.

We suggest having cash on hand as not all vendors will be accepting credit cards.


The Oregon Garden is pet-friendly, but we ask that you do not have your pets in the Garden after 6pm on July 3rd. The fireworks tend to scare animals, and we have had numerous runaway pets in the past. Please keep your pets safe.




Annually, the fireworks display costs between $10,000 and $15,000, and is paid for by the Oregon Garden Foundation. Donations are being sought to help offset the cost of the fireworks display, and we would love your help.

Donations can be made by sending payment to the Oregon Garden Foundation at P.O. Box 155, Silverton, OR 97381, by contacting staff at 503-874-2535, info@oregongarden.org or online:
