Your Guide To Rapid City Firework Celebrations

We do big things year round - and celebrating our shrine of democracy is no different. Here's the official line up of Independence Day firework celebrations in Rapid City and the Black Hills.

In The City

We've not only got one, but four firework shows within the city ready to light up the night sky. From the official city fireworks to family-favorite events like the Post 22 Firecracker Tournament and track races at AMP Fest, there's enough to keep you busy all week long. No shortage of celebration here!

July 2 | Post 22 Floyd Fitzgerald Stadium 
July 4 | Official City Show at Executive Golf Course
July 4 | AMP Fest at Black Hills Speedway


Around The City

Meet our friendly neighbor, Piedmont who resides about 15 minutes outside of Rapid City. Visit Piedmont for a spectacular show at a family owned and operated bar.

July 4 | Piedmont at The Barn


At Mount Rushmore

An Independence Day celebration wouldn't be the same without our rock stars. For the first time in over a decade, Mount Rushmore Fireworks return with a big bang. Ticket holders will enjoy a lineup of entertainment throughout the day including hoop dancers and Lakota storytellers and flyovers in partnership with the United States Air Force and Ellsworth Air Force Base.
