Editor’s note • This story was published in 2018. Here’s a list of 2019 shows on the Wasatch Front, and here’s a 2019 story about restrictions on setting them off yourself.

As wildfires blaze across a dry Utah, public officials are asking residents to respect bans on fireworks that range from areas inside cities to the entire town of Park City to wide swaths of public and private land in southern Utah.

And although Sugar House Park won’t have a professional display for the first summer in years, cities around the Wasatch Front plan to light the skies at dusk on Independence Day.

A new law this year gives Utah municipalities more leeway in banning fireworks over fire hazards. The law also reduced the number of days fireworks can be discharged over the July Fourth and Pioneer Day holidays, from 14 to eight days. Where they are permitted at all, fireworks may be used from July 2 to July 5, and from July 22 to July 25.

The Unified Fire Authority has an interactive map online, and the Utah Department of Public Safety is updating its list of restrictions, but both urge residents to check with local municipalities for the latest information.
