Fireworks are not allowed in Lafayette

Please remember all fireworks are illegal in Lafayette and can result in citations and fines. Please be courteous to your neighbors and pets by following the City ordinance. You can report use of fireworks to the Lafayette Police Department at 303-441-4444. Please report the violation at the time you hear or witness it in order to help officers locate the activity in a timely manner. 

Waneka fireworks display canceled for 2021

The Lafayette Chamber has made the difficult decision to cancel the July 4th Celebration at Waneka Lake.

Fundraising of $15,000-$17,000 is required for a 15-minute show, which has been accomplished in the past with business sponsors and some contributions from Lafayette residents. The Lafayette business community has been very generous in the past, but they were severely impacted by COVID, so seeking donations from those local businesses struggling to re-open wasn't possible. The Chamber would have needed to order $17,000 in non-refundable fireworks in March, which they couldn't justify not knowing if the event would be allowed. When the COVID "all-clear" was received in May, it was too late to order. 

The Chamber is truly saddened they aren't able to host the July 4th event. They hope to bring it back next year with the support of the Lafayette community.
