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.
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. This intimate show also allows for guests to be quite close to the fireworks launch site, which could impact guests with noise sensitivities.
For our ADA guests, we suggest parking at the Visitor Center and viewing the fireworks from the Bosque.
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.
We are expecting hot weather on July 3rd. The fireworks viewing area doesn’t have much shade, which is why it’s so great for viewing fireworks, but please plan accordingly and be safe!
