4th of July Fireworks in Gatlinburg: The Ultimate Guide


In Gatlinburg, you can watch some seriously spectacular fireworks going off on July 4th. And since Gatlinburg has its very own Space Needle, you can get a really good view of the show from anywhere in town as the fireworks are launched from a starting point of 400 feet in the air! Here are all the details you need to know.

1. IT’S FREE!

It doesn’t cost a cent to see this great show (and with how breathtaking it is, it feels like they should be selling tickets!). So gather around with your whole vacation crew. There’s no capacity limit on the fun.

The show is shot from atop the iconic Gatlinburg Space Needle. Launching fireworks from the ground is so blasé. In Gatlinburg, the fireworks start out high in the sky and they only get higher.

And since the Space Needle launch means you can see the fireworks from all over town, there’s room for everyone to spread out a bit.

2. THE SHOW STARTS AT 11 P.M.

The first Aerial Repeater goes off at 11 P.M. sharp! The sun goes down late in summertime Gatlinburg, so this show’s got a late start. Ready, set, ignite!

3. WHAT ABOUT AFTER (OR BEFORE) THE SHOW?

Unfortunately, it is not legal to set off your own fireworks in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, or many of the surrounding areas. However, you are free to partake in sparklers, burners and other novelty fireworks so long as you play it safe.
